Watch this U.S. Navy launch a Tomahawk missile into a ship in what is being described as a "game changing" military advancement.

"It demonstrates the viability of long-range communications for position updates of moving targets,” Capt. Joe Mauser, Tomahawk Weapons System (PMA-280) program manager for Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) said in a Feb. 5 Navy statement.
“This success further demonstrates the existing capability of Tomahawk as a netted weapon, and in doing so, extends its reach beyond fixed and re-locatable points to moving targets.”

This allows the Navy to extend it's attack reach by 1,000 miles.

It looks like it could seriously ruin a Somali Pirates day!
