Cruise missiles, such as the German Taurus missiles, are characterized by the ability to fly at low altitude deep inside hostile territory and destroy important targets.

These targets can include command centers, bunkers, and radar installations.

Therefore, the Tomahawk missile is launched from ships or submarines, while the Taurus missile is launched from Planes.
