Britain arms submarines with cruise missiles

Britain is working on a project to supply some of its war submarines with “Tomahawk” missiles.

The British Royal Navy plans to provide its submarines with new Block V Tomahawk cruise missiles, capable of dealing with surface targets.

In 2024, these submarines will be upgraded with the Tomahawk missiles, and tests of these missiles are scheduled for the following year.

Traditional winged Tomahawk missiles have been used since 1983 in the US Army, and each of these missiles has a length of about 5.6 m, and can be launched from submarines or warships to hit targets 2400 km away from the launch area.

In 2020, the United States began equipping its warships and submarines with copies of Modified Block V of these missiles.
