US missile strike on Syria


Recommended Posts

60 TLAMs is a lot of cruise missiles for a couple of Burkes whose primary mission is supposed to be BMD. I wonder whether they bulked up with TLAMs prior to the mission, or whether this was a standard load.

If they were deploying to Sixth Fleet's AOR, a BMD loadout isn't a massive amount of use as any Iranian missiles would pass well to the North.

Depends on the intended target of the ballistic missile, of course, but both Ross and Porter are based at Rota for that very purpose, at least officially.

At least in the DB both have 40xTomahawk, very near the 30xship fired in this action!

 

Yes, I'm pretty happy with how that turned out. Even though the USNI article does suggest they were "prepped" for this particular mission.
