The Army is looking for a way to contribute in the Pacific, and looks like that’s going to come in the form of long-range anti-ship cruise missiles:

The U.S. Army is getting into the anti-ship cruise missile business. The service has contracted to equip mobile launchers with either the Tomahawk long-range cruise missile or the SM-6 “Standard” missile for use in attacks against ships at sea. While the project has been in the works for some time, the decision to move forward indicates that the Army is serious about making a contribution in the Pacific.
