tomahawk cruise missile test

The three panels show a 1986 test of a Tomahawk cruise missile. The missile traveled 640 km (400 mile) low over the terrain to detonate above the target, a decommissioned fighter plane. It’s pretty clear the test was a success.


Oh, and one more thing. This Tomahawk test was done 24 years ago. How much has the technology improved since then?
