according to the US Navy announcement, one ESSM was fired, in addition to two SM-2sSurely you don t fire a SM-2 at a missile that is fired from a distance of a score of kilometres? Smaller and cheaper missiles
nah, you don't know incoming missiles' profiles to claim this, I mean a Phalanx is mounted at the fore, so what if they had been fired at close range and approaching (I said if, I of course don't know the profiles either) from the rear ... plus obviously SM-2s are the most reliable for this job; can you imagine the disgrace if the ship had been hit?! I can'tor the Phalanx should do it.
LOL by the way do you know what missiles the Partizans fired (I didn't see any official info, just "probably" "possibly" "evidence suggests" etc. stuff)?
about six mil (in total, depending on the version)And now they fired five Tomahawks. How much did these cost?
which is:But the main cost is to US diplomatic position.
