    Bigger caliber doesnt automatically mean better penitration. It does mean less ammo, heavier weights more recoil and having to justify the cost to Congress.

    Still the Army is in the start of adopting your bigger caliber. The thing about this though it we are not just talking a barrier penitrator but a armor piercer that gets more expensive as it demands more specialized materials. A steel cored round will generally not pierce level III or Level IV body armor. That demands a core of tungsten carbide steel. That costs a pretty penny.

    well,
    Saudi Arabia, US take a significant step toward closing $15 billion deal for Lockheed Martin's THAAD missile defense system
    • Saudi Arabia has signed a letter of offer and acceptance with the United States for Lockheed Martin's THAAD missile system.
    • It's a significant step forward in the $15 billion deal, a State Department spokesperson confirmed to CNBC.
    • Saudi officials, alongside their U.S. counterparts, signed the crucial government-to-government agreement earlier this week, paving the way for the massive sale of 44 THAAD launchers, missiles and related equipment.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command and the U.S. Fifth Fleet has been found dead in his residence in Bahrain.

    Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson says Vice Adm. Scott Stearney was found dead Saturday.

    Richardson says the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Bahraini Ministry of Interior are investigating the death, but foul play is not suspected.

    Rear Adm. Paul Schlise, the deputy commander of the Fifth Fleet, has taken over Stearney's duties.

    Richardson described Stearney as a decorated naval warrior, a devoted husband and father, and a good friend.

    The Fifth Fleet includes the Arabian Gulf, the Gulf of Oman, the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea.
