USS FLORIDA conducts successful tests

By Team Submarine Public Affairs 

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE – The USS FLORIDA (SSGN 728) launched four TOMAHAWK Cruise Missiles from the Gulf of Mexico to the Eglin Air Force Base land attack test range during its successful Strike Operational Evaluation between May 15 and 17, 2007.

FLORIDA launched a total of three Block IV and one Block III TOMAHAWK cruise missiles from a single MAC in missile tube #3. Two Block IV TOMAHAWK missiles were launched less than one minute apart on the first day of testing. In a first-of-its-kind demonstration, FLORIDA proved its ability to retarget one of the Block IV missiles after having “flexed” the missile inflight to a pre-programmed secondary target.
