The Libyan Navy does some missile craft. I don’t know which side the Libyan Navy has backed in the fighting. The Tomahawk land attack missile has a much longer range than any anti-shipping missile the Libyans have so the shooters should be in no danger.

That is ship to ship. The exocet can be fired from the air.

The last I saw, the rebels had control of Libya's only operational frigate, a corvette, and about half of the missile boats, which leaves the Loyalists with a corvette and 8-10 missile boats.

There was a report a few days ago that Rebel forces sank two Loyalist ships, but I don't know if that has been confirmed.

Supposedly, there are still two old Foxtrot submarines tied up alongside dock, but they haven't been to sea since 2003 and are considered to be inoperable.
