    Raytheon Company have delivered the 4,000th Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile to the U.S. Navy. Launched from submarines or ships, the Tomahawk missile can fly into heavily defended airspace 1,000 miles away to conduct precise strikes. Fired in combat more than 2,300 times, Tomahawk cruise missiles are used by U.S. And British forces to defeat integrated air defense systems and conduct long-range precision strike missions against high-value targets.

     Upgrades to the Tomahawk missile include enhancements to the weapon’s communications and navigation capabilities, while adding a multi-mode seeker so it can hit moving targets at sea. Some of these enhancements will be implemented beginning in 2019. Other upgrades will be phased in over time. Modernized Tomahawk cruise misiles will be in the U.S. Navy’s inventory beyond 2040.
