|I have just read over the net articles that claim a motive for Rumsfield cancellation of CRUSADER is his perceived support for the new "Metal Storm"
Project, still under R&D. The base function of "MS" is to overwhelm enemy formations thru sheer volume of on-target precision fire. I couldn't help but recall the former "Sgt York" DIVAD/DIVAAD Project of the 1970' and 80's, specfically between those of us in the OUSA that favored a mobile multiweapon systems applcns. approach to DIVAD, versus those who wanted the singular, bulky, radar-guided conventional AD/AH arty approach. Rummy's decision strongly seems to have vindicated out line of thinking, only years too late for "Sgt York" per se.
