It's a long way from the recreational marine market, but a newly released video shows the first test exercise of a newly developed stealth cruise anti-ship missile called the Naval Strike Missile.

The 880-pound, GPS-guided cruise missile, designed to fly just above sea level to avoid radar detection, can extend to a 100-nautical-mile range and can be used coastally or on the open sea, according to developer Kongsberg Defense Systems.

The one-minute video looks more like a Hollywood movie than a military exercise, but it is an awesome display of military firepower.
