Lol.. Guess what that is? A layered defense also lol.. It"s salesman talk. Hehehehe the brochure talks about oth engagement yet it also talks about lasers and CIWS...then I'll be wrong
and I quote a recent study by
claiming "The current layered defensive AAW approach puts surface combatants on the wrong end of weapon and cost exchanges."
(p. 18 in the document available at
I think Brumby originally posted it, but I'm not sure)
and instead suggesting, well, I don't want to misquote them, so I just clipped out this picture:
and anybody who cares may read that document ... but yeah, they acknowledge "A key barrier to implementing this new AAW scheme is cultural. Today's surface combatant commanders prefer defenses that can engage incoming missiles at the same approximate range." etc., so,
come to Prague and we talk about it LOL
