Thoughts on the military and military activities of a diverse nature. Free-ranging and eclectic.

This is coolbert: Here is a web site that discusses in more detail the gun ABM system as was mentioned by me in a previous post to the blog:

Naval Proceedings from a decade ago.

click here.

Go there and see all the details. This describes several shipboard systems that were touted at the time. The idea was to still have naval gunfire and give it a dual purpose, to support say amphibious landings and also to have the ABM capability. Very good article. Seems the idea is dormant. Too bad. For a cheap price this would seem to be the way to go. For the cost of one test of a conventional ABM missile [most of these tests of which seem to be failures], you could have a gun system ABM prototype up and working in a relatively short time. For tests and such. Sounds good to me.
