I heard that the US has submarines that can launch aircraft from missile tubes.
These craft have a protective shell inside the launch/storage tube, and that shell falls into the sea when the device is launched.
No "missile" impact would occur with a submarine-launched aircraft (read:drone) since it isn't a missile in the traditional sense.
We are thinking Cold War technology. This is an error.
The military is using 21st Century technology (in some cases, in others - not so much)
