The guided missile destroyer USS Nitze (DDG 94) launches a strike against three coastal radar sites in Houthi-controlled territory on Yemen's Red Sea coast on Oct. 13. Due to hostile acts, continuing and imminent threat of force, and multiple threats to vessels in the Bab-al Mandeb Strait, including U.S. naval vessels, Nitze struck the sites, which were used to attack U.S. ships operating in international waters, threatening freedom of navigation. Nitze is deployed to the 5th Fleet area of operations to support maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts. (U.S. Navy video)

    Sadly the Nitze 5 tomahawks may have killed a herd of goats. The missiles of the Houthi nation have eluded the SM-2 and Essm missiles of the nitze and put the ussPonce( a dock) at risk.
