Pretty cool thread about the RIM Talos missile development, operational use and subsequent use as a supersonic target drone.

Note the use of the missile in a land attack role to take out a radar installation during the Vietnam war.


If you have similar content about Naval Missiles to share or link to, this would be the thread!

Are you trying to get me to talk about naval missiles? Who sent you? Who do you work for?

An innocent question from someone looking for information on nuclear wessels.

Funny that missile has been on ships deploying for over a year now. But officially we are now at IOC?
 
US Army strikes moving target at sea in Pacific Ocean during exercise Valiant Shield using PrSM- Canada (RCN HMCS Montreal) is involved in this exercise…

TLDR- “June 16, 2024 3d Multi-Domain Task Force and 1-181 Field Artillery Regiment of the Tennessee National Guard employed the U.S. Army Autonomous Multi-Domain Launcher (AML) and two Precision Strike Missiles (PrSM) as part of the Valiant Shield 24 Combined Joint SINKEX. The AML and PrSMs engaged a maritime target alongside other joint assets during the SINKEX. The VS24 SINKEX is the first employment of both the AML and the PrSM outside of the U.S and is a significant milestone in the U.S. Army’s continuing development of long-range fires capabilities.






PrSM

The Lockheed Martin PrSM has an objective range of 60 to 650 kilometers (37 to 403 miles). It is a surface-to-surface, all-weather, precision-strike guided missile, fired from both the M270A1 Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) and M142 High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS). As the replacement for the MGM-140 Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS), PrSM doubles ATACMS’ current rate-of-fire with two missiles per launch pod. It is designed to attack threat air defense systems, missile launchers, command and control (C2) nodes, troop assembly/staging areas and high-payoff targets throughout the battlefield at ranges of more than 500 kilometers.

A multi-mode seeker is used for engaging moving land and maritime targets. Future Increments of PrSM will include:

  • Multi-domain operations capability to engage moving land and maritime targets;
  • Enhanced lethality payloads capable of autonomously and collaboratively detecting, targeting, and striking high payoff targets that are moving, have moved, poorly located, or dispersed;
  • Extended range capability enabled through air-breathing ramjet propulsion

I know a couple of people have theorized that the CSC could potentially be equipped with RUM 139C type system in the Mk 41 VLS. This would be in addition to the TLS near the almighty mission bay.

However, it appears that the US is riding down production of the RUM 139 series, so the UK is now on the hunt for a missile to carry the StingRay or Future Lightweight Torpedo, and they are suggesting a production run of 500 missiles for cost analysis purposes. These are missiles only and not the torpedo carried by the missile.


To that end, I'm sure the USN is working or at least thinking about a VLS replacement for the RUM 139 series, but there's not a lot out there that is OS.
