USS Florida TLAM Launch Video

Check out this YouTube video that looks like it was put together by the SubRon 16 Weapons shop; it has periscope and underwater camera footage of the TLAM launch USS Florida (SSGN 728) did in May. It's especially good for those who weren't really sure how the seven missile Multiple All-Up-Round canister works for the SSGN conversions:

The video's almost eight minutes long; a reader sent me a two minute version that I'm thinking of posting on YouTube for the more time-crunched viewer. If I do, I'll post the link.

Very interesting - the LASS looks like a de-milled patrol craft... maybe one I built a model of back in the 70s.

I was there on 728. Nicely done vid! I had never seen some of that footage. I had believed the TLAMs were dudded over the FL panhandle?
