Tomahawks - They be a blowin up better!


Cosmic Mongoose
An article talking about taking deliberate advantage of the potential explosive potential of the remaining fuel in a Tomahawk missile once it strikes it's targets. Thermobarbaric (i.e fuel air explosive) tech isn't new. And sometimes (as the article cites), you get it for free - like when the UK frigate caught fire from the fuel of the Exocet instead of the warhead that didn't detonate - you still can get the desired effect.

I would imagine there is probably some a bit of fancy work going on behind the scenes to ensure the fuel can be properly vaporized AND detonate in tandem with the warhead - you don't want one necessarily taking out the other first.
