Watch the Stunning Moment a US Submarine Launches a Tomahawk Missile In Air Strikes Against Syria

5


On Friday the forces of the United States, France, and the United Kingdom targeted chemical weapons sites in Syria in a combined air assault, including over 100 missile strikes. These came almost exactly a year after an assault launched in April 2017. 

The video footage above shows the launch of a Tomahawk missile from a sub, the fast-attack Virginia-class USS John Warner. It’s a stunning close-up display of force as the missile blasts from the water then arcs toward its destination.

CNN reports the Tomahawk was far from the only weapon the combined forces threw at Bashar al-Assad’s chemical weapons labs. Britain reportedly brought “four Tornado fighter jets armed with Storm Shadow cruise missiles.” 

France contributed Rafale fighter jets, frigates, and its own cruise missiles. President Emmanuel Macron tweeted video of the Rafales taking off on their mission.

In addition to subs like the John Warner, the United States came fully loaded and ready for anything. CNN reports “Pentagon officials said the US Air Force used two B-1B bombers in the Syria strike.” That’s along with warships, destroyers, and battle cruisers.
