    Best part is they claim it has a range of 2.600km and that it harms US security. I didn´t know that the Atlantic is so narrow. Very Happy

    Well actually a 2,600km range and base it in the north in the arctic or in the far east it would cover most of the areas they intend to put AEGIS class cruisers during WWIII to shoot down Russian ICBM warheads on their way to the US... if they could destroy ships then the US would be in trouble... the MK-41 launcher is interesting but not magical... if the ship is to be used to shoot down satellites and ICBM warheads in low earth orbit then they want SM-3 missiles which would be useless against cruise missiles and hypersonic missiles... but then the flight speed of these cruise missiles would require the Russians to know the US was about to mount an attack... though the positioning of AEGIS cruisers in various places at a time of heightened tension would be a clue...
