Missile Defense Success

Published by at 1:19 pm under All General Discussions

All those on the left who fought a Missile Defense System since Reagan’s SDI program (which I had the honor to work on very early in my career) are hopefully realizing how bad their decisions were. The military successfully tested a THAAD interceptor missile, which represents the last tier in a multi-tiered defense system for taking out intercontinental missiles (thought the THAAD can be used for shorter ranges as well). Take note North Korea – this is one of many barriers you need to penetrate to even hit us. And remember, our missiles will hit their targets.

    I have a question – could this system defend against sub launches?

    It is a terminal kill system in that it works no matter how the missile was launched. This system kills the incoming missile on the way down as it is heading for it’s target, it doesn’t care how the missile got up there to begin with.

    Thanks. I was concerned that it would need a “long” flight time in order to ascertain an intercept vector.
