Aviation Week, June 18 2007, page 56 High Speed Shortcut Raytheon is studying a "supersonic Tomahawk" concept it believes could offer the U.S. Navy a quick path to fielding a comparatively high-speed conventional strike weapon. 600-700 mile range cruise speed at Mach 2.2 same size and weight as current Tomahawk deployed from same tube launchers may use AESA radar for final targeting

Smaller and better range.  Same size as current Tomahawk.  It fits current US vertical tube launchers and sub launchers.  Could be deployed on both SSN and new Trident Cruise missile subs.  Even the current Yahont is a much larger missile.
