The US Navy is moving to put more ship-killer missiles on submarines | Defense News

The US Navy is looking to invest more in anti-ship cruise missiles on submarines in the Pacific, as confirmed by the head of U.S. Navy Submarine Forces. The submarines are packing with longer-range weapons like the Maritime Strike Tomahawk. It is one of three Block V variants of the Navy’s stalwart cruise missile currently in development. With the rising threat from China, the anti-ship missile which incorporates a new seeker is slated to start coming online in 2023.
