    A Poseldon missile was fired from the U.S. submarine Daniel Boone through stormy seas off?

  • Description

    A Poseldon missile was fired from the U.S. submarine Daniel Boone through stormy seas off the coast of Florida at 11:15 A.M. (EST) Tuesday, October 6th.

    It was the 25th flight test for the U.S. Navy's new weapon system, which was developed to double the payload of ITS predecessor, Polaris.

    The U.S. Air Force supervised the Poseldon launch, the fifth from a submarine and the third from the Daniel Boone.

    The first submerged launching of a Polaris missile was from the U.S. submarine George Washington on July 20, 1960. Later, improved models were fired. The weapon has the range to hit virtually any inland target. The Poseidon is more accurate.
