    In your coverage of the Excalibur N5, we're being told that the round is capabe of engaging sea targets (ships) as well. Does it mean it as a moving target engagement capability via datalink update? Because in my understanding it's still GPS only, and even an idling vessel would move just with the current. If the round attacks with a steep angle, that means a high arc, which means a considerable time of flight.

    Some of these videos are likely OK for non-US/UK audience, I hope the accent of some of the speakers (including myself who knows, I got really exhausted towards the end of the week) is not a huge turn off for native English speakers.

    True, but a lot shorter in lengthwise. Looks like a stealth yacht for one of James Bond villain.
