True on the expense, Thump. I've gone through the Alabama... However, if history has taught us, one thing seems to be that when you have all kinds of super high technology at your disposal, someone with a low tech approach will hand you your ass in a hat. We have missiles from hell, aircraft from hell invisible to radar and can stop and hide in a cloud, all kinds of EW stuff that can heat a can of Beanie Weenie up at 1000 meters, a huge radar invisible bomber, a sling wing bomber that can fly NOE so low you can't hear it coming and won't hear it going because you're dead, and still we had the side blown out of a ship in harbor by a damn boston whaler... Add to that the fact that ships are still being hijacked at sea by a bunch of ignorant pirates that the highest technologies they possess are boat motors, old soviet rpgs, and cheap ass Kalashnikov copies....
Very true. And the Republican Guard can attest to the fear inspired by incoming 16" 50cal salvoes.
