Lore

Calculating missile speed.
- Tomahawk

The Tomahawk missile began life as a naval-based cruise missile that could carry a wide range of warheads. By the time the US faced the GLA, it began test to deploy the Tomahawk missiles onto ground mobile platforms. This however was horrible. The missile didn't provide any benefit over the Chinese or the GLA artillery, and the cost and weakness of them made them useless. However, due to the cost of the initial project, the US defense department gave it another try.

The new version of the Tomahawk is now more mobile, more cost effective, and comes with a new fire system. In its normal mode, the missile travels fast, being able to hit the target before AA systems can shoot them down, at least when 2-3 Tomahawks are firing. This fast mode also enables the Tomahawk missile to track its target, guaranteeing a hit. In cruise mode, the missile sacrifices speed and tracking for extended range. This enables the Tomahawk to hit targets well-beyond most artillery systems, including the dreaded Russian MSTA. This range is easily countered by the fact that the missile can now be easily shot down, but the range boost is impressive.
