Anti-Ship Too? U.S. Army Testing U.S. Navy And Air Force Bombs And Missiles For LRPF

Naval News – The U.S. Army has now decided to purchase the U.S. Navy’s Tomahawk cruise missile and the dual-role Standard SM-6 Anti-Air and Anti-Surface/Ship missile and use both for the Long Range Precision Fires (LRPF) priorities. These two U.S. Navy shipboard missiles, now U.S. Army truck-mounted, can also act as Anti-Ship missiles for the U.S. Army or the U.S. Marine Corps.  The Maritime Tomahawk can be used, and the radar-guided Standard SM-6 has an incorporated Surface-to-Surface/Anti-Ship targeting capability, although its 140-pound warhead is much smaller than the 1,000-pound warhead on the Tomahawk missile.
