Tomahawk Shooter - SSN old school

Bubblehead has a cool video up on his site of the USS Florida (SSGN 728) doing a multi TLAM launch.

I did my own little search of GoogleVideo and found this interesting clip of the USS Louisville (SSN724) doing that TLAM thing the per Trident SSGN way.

Great remix with the SNL clip of the VP doing a Slim Pickens Dr. Strangelove impression.

Vintage 2003 opening salvo footage.

Isn't the Louisville a VLS boat? They also put those damn things in the torpedo room?

Mike, yes the Louisville is a VLS boat and the TLAM was first deployed as a torpedo tube launched weapon.
More on the Louisville here.

Funny how 2003 seems like history, thanks for stopping by. -LL
