Description: The US Navy Submarine Launched Cruise Missile (SLCM) is a program aimed at delivering a nuclear armed cruise missile to be launched from submarines and maybe surface ships. The new missile is expected to encompass stealth technology and an outstanding range in excess of 2,500 kilometers, probably between 4,000 and 5,000 kilometers. The missile might be fitted with the W80-4 nuclear warhead also intended for the US Air Force LRSO cruise missile. The program cost is estimated at $16-to $18 billion including the development and procurement of the missiles and the nuclear warheads. The US Navy goal is to get the new SLCM deployed by 2030.
