Navy Times reports that “it’s been nearly 40 years since the Navy started its relationship with the Harpoon missile, but now the service seems to have eyes for another surface-to-surface anti-ship missile: A younger, more agile Norwegian.”  

“The Navy test-fired the Naval Strike Missile from the littoral combat ship Coronado on Sept. 23, and the brass liked what they saw.”  

“’This demonstration provided us with a tremendous opportunity to see the capabilities of both the ship and the missile, and what we saw today has great potential for LCS and other fleet assets,’ said Rear Adm. Brian Antonio, head of the littoral combat ship program office, in a statement.”
