There were two airframes. One was outside and wrapped at a LM facility. It's gone now.
For the first time ever, an SM-3 Block IIA missile successfully intercepted a threat-representative Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) target.
The U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA), and U.S. Navy sailors aboard an Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) System-equipped destroyer intercepted and destroyed a threat-representative Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) target with a Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IIA missile during a flight test demonstration in the broad ocean area northeast of Hawaii, Nov. 16.
SM-3 was not designed for endo-atmospheric engagement and is therefore unsuitable against hypersonic gliders. But it's still an immensely relevant defense system and will remain so until adversaries transition all their BM warheads to HGVs.It is. But it's a couple of decades late.
We know the Russians have Avangard so the warheads won't necessarily have ballistic trajectories.
The Chinese also have similar warheads like in the DF-17.
This is all a cat and mouse game that will only lead to increased military spending in the longer term.
It all started with the withdrawal of the US from the ABM Treaty.
What about the test environment?
