The Navy’s Hunter-Killers: Tomahawks and Small Drones

Source: Defense Tech

The newest versions of the Navy’s Tomahawk cruise missile can be rediriected in flight to hit moving targets but now the sea service is working to joining Tomahawks and small UAVs operated by special operations teams in a sort of hunter-killer combo. Basically, the SOF teams will use their small UAVs to spot and track enemies and send the targeting data from the UAV to a control center that can redirect the missiles whenever the target moves.
