Raytheon Delivers 3000th Tomahawk Block IV Missile to US Navy

Within the framework of Block IV full-rate FY12 production contract, Raytheon Company delivered the 3000th Tomahawk Block IV missile to the US Navy.

Within the framework of Block IV full-rate FY12 production contract, Raytheon Company delivered the 3000th Tomahawk Block IV missile to the US Navy.

The Tomahawk Block IV missile is a surface- and submarine-launched precision strike stand-off weapon designed for long-range precision strike missions. The missile is currently in use by the US Navy’s surface combatants as well as U.S. and U.K. sub-surface platforms.

Tomahawks can fly into heavily defended airspace and precisely strike high-value targets with minimal collateral damage.

The U.S. Navy continues to purchase the missiles, which are warranted for 15 years, via the FY13 budget, and negotiations are ongoing for next year’s production contract.
