Constellation is Sm-2MR blk III (=ARH) capable.That sounds like the defense military industrial complex ripping off the US tax payer. Or you can turn on the Fed's printing presses. $250 million is going to be chump change with today's inflation. I don't recall seeing illuminators on the Constellation so that's how they are going to fly, with Block 2 ESSMs. In China's case, that's a branch of the Chinese government paying a state owned company, so this is like flipping money between pockets of the same coat. Ultimately both ESSM Blk 2 and 555 for their respective navies are going to be purchased with their respective sovereign currency.
