On August 18, the US conducted a flight test of a conventionally configured ground-launched cruise missile, formerly banned under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty that recently fell apart.

The test appeared to be conducted using a MK-41 launcher like those found on U.S. Navy guided-missile cruisers and destroyers mounted on a mobile launcher. Allegedly the missile was a Tomahawk Land Attack Missile, which is a staple in the US Navy. As of May 2017, there’s been a nuclear variant of the Tomahawk fielded.
