SAN DIEGO (Sept. 10, 2009) The Ticonderoga-class cruiser USS Princeton (CG 59) successfully launches a Block II Harpoon in the Naval Air Systems Command Sea Test Range off the coast of southern California. The missile scored a direct hit on a land-based target on San Nicolas Island, Calif. The upgrade adds GPS capability to the missile, giving it more precision and the capability to fire not only on surface ships but also on land targets. (U.S. Navy photo)
