U.S. Missile Mysteriously Turns Up in Cuba and No One Knows How It Got There 

A Hellfire missile that the US shipped to Europe for NATO training purposes last year somehow wound up in Cuba. As far as straight up losing sensitive military technology goes, this is one of the biggest screw-ups of its kind.

Watch a Russian submarine launch supersonic cruise missiles in the air

Here is footage showing a Russian Navy submarine attacking ISIS positions in Raqqa, Syria by launching missiles from the submarine itself. The Kalibr cruise missiles were launched from the Rostov-on-Don submarine, a Kilo-class diesel electric submarine, in the Mediterranean. It’s the first time Russia had launched strikes in Syria from a submarine in the Mediterranean.

How Fighter Jets Lock On (and How the Targets Know)

How Fighter Jets Lock On (and How the Targets Know)

The primary technology that a military aircraft uses to lock and track an enemy aircraft is its onboard radar. Aircraft radars typically have two modes: search and track. In search mode, the radar sweeps a radio beam across the sky in a zig-zag pattern. When the radio beam is reflected by a target aircraft, an indication is shown on the radar display. In search mode, no single aircraft is being tracked, but the pilot can usually tell generally what a particular radar return is doing because with each successive sweep, the radar return moves slightly.

This is how they load missiles on a US Navy ship

I've seen them firing many times, but I've to confess that I've never seen one of these missiles systems getting loaded. It seems as easy as inserting a cartridge in a Nintendo Entertainment system.

The Newest Tomahawk Is a Mighty Morphin' Cruise Missile

The Tomahawk is among the most widely used and effective conventional weapons in the US arsenal, especially since we began covertly launching them from the safety of submerged submarines during the Cold War.
