PATUXENT RIVER, Md. (NNS) -- The U.S. Navy’s Tomahawk program completed two successful tests of the new block IV (Tactical Tomahawk) Tomahawk missile in September.

Now I know why the Gov was shooting all those hawks in Iraq, they had a new bird on line and had to use up the old stock.

The two way data link should make this very very usefull. Esp if a quick target pops up, you will be able to retask it to deal with it. Or better yet, it may be more usuable in a SEAD role, as threats pop up, retarget it as well. I don't think they have alot of loiter time though.

Actually, I think they are uprgading old ones IMHO.
