House Boosts Funding to Keep Tomahawk Production Open

The House Armed Services Committee added money to the 2016 defense bill to keep the Tomahawk Block IV missile production line open even after the Navy had chosen to close it.
Committee leaders included funding to order 198 additional Tomahawk Block IV missiles, despite plans by the Navy to pursue a next-generation land attack weapon – a move which could wind up leading the service to develop an upgraded, next-generation Tomahawk.
