Subject: US air defence not up to standard?
Terrex    11/28/2004 12:59:26 AM
I come across a news in janes website ---------------------------------------------------------------------- http://jdw.janes.com/ The US Army wants to flight test a low-cost anti-cruise missile interceptor meant to complement its current and emerging inventory of air defence systems. US defence officials said Operation 'Iraqi Freedom' showed that the US needs to do more to counter cruise missiles after Iraqi cruise missiles launched into Kuwait early in the conflict were not detected in time to be engaged. Along with efforts to mature overhead surveillance sensors ... 26-Nov-2004 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- The missiles used by Iraq r the HY-2 cruise missiles! The missile is design in the 60's and is consider obsolete but able to breach US Air defence in Gulf War 2! I got another link which shows the number of occasion of the missile attack by Iraq and how it happen. http://www.jfsc.ndu.edu/current_students/documents_policies/documents/jca_cca_awsp/Cruise_Missile_Defense_Final.doc The link also shows how US air defence is not capable of handling LACM and how US has prioritize development of air defence against LACM.Below is a abstract of from the link admiting US air defence is incapable against LACM. "DOD has acknowledged its lack of sufficient defense against cruise missile at-tacks, and is taking steps to correct the deficiency. Concurrently, enemies of the United States are also aware of this weakness, and can be expected to exploit it. The U.S. family of legacy systems to counter the LACM threat is not only inca-pable of handling the threat projected by 2010, it is also completely inadequate to work effectively against even the limited current threat. Even with enhancements to current systems, U.S. forces will not be able to provide a defense sufficient to protect key power projection access facilities such as ports and bases, and vital areas such as forward-based command and control centers." ---------------------------------------------------------------------- It seems US is handicapped against this obsolete but modified cruise missiles. I wondering how US going to stop more advance land and sea cruise missiles from Russian,PLA,Iran and North Korea? If any reader has knowledge of HY-2 missiles,it is a damm bulky missiles compare to Kh-35,C-802,Excoet and many many more which r own by the mention countries.By the way,these few missiles r not the most advance in their categories!

Mate, I deleted your post on the other forum because you were rude and ignorant. When I spend 2 hrs patiently trying to explain things and someone becomes ill mannered - then your posts get deleted. Btw, the other Mods agreed with the action - even though you PM'd one and had a little whinge about it. The Webbie spoke. ;) As for supporting US technical supremacy, in some areas they clearly have it, in some they don't. If you were able to respond logically to the examples I gave, then you wouldn't have ended up in the sin bin. The fact that you failed to understand basic concepts is not something I can help you with. As I said, goto any Janes Weapons Systems publication since 1989 and you'll see the specs in black and white. Rule No:1 Never use abuse as part of your argument - the Mods always win.

I have proved US air defence is incapable against LACM in system wise while u keep trying to bring it to a commanding lvl! I provide facts and link while u give assumption and no link to support yr claim! Talking abt abuse,u seems to be the one doing it not me.Abt being rude who use highlighten word in the first place? I nvr write a single vulgar word and personal attack on my thread! Talking abt ignorant,u r the one trying to ignore all the facts and link I provide without giving concrete facts and link to rebuke my thing! Now I'm going to make a personal attack,gf0012-aust! One sentence to sum up all my words,u r not fit to comment impartially on any defence and military forum because of yr pro US supreamcy believe!

Deary me, you are sounding as though you are on the verge of hysteria. A few facts here, if you have the patience between the current bouts of apoplectic responses, and if you bother to read through any number of threads on this forum, you will notice that I give credit to other countries technologies (and yes my little cherub, even Chinese technologies where warranted, like the Su-27 derivative), so to carry on like a chihuaha and accuse me of only supporting american technology tends to hilight that you are very very new on here and haven't read anything I've posted in the past. Frothing at the mouth via your posts doesn't change the fact that you're failing to understand some basic technical comments, and as such, trying to help you is somewhat of a lost cause. I have extraordinary levels of patience that can be mined for an eternity - but alas, it runs out when the goodwill is exhausted. Before carrying on about my affection for US technology over others (and by this I assume that I don't exhibit the same degree of lustful exuberance for chinese kit) then I suggest you have a little read. However, I do fear that your current failure to understand things in plain english is going to act as an educative delimiter.

Lol, it's amazing how some people can convey a picture of frothing at the mouth by TYPING. Amazing use of the language, really.
