    i think that was cool but i don't really know what i was watching. were those remote boats firing things or was the big ship firing shit at the little boats and hitting the target so precisely that it could knock off a little rocket launcher on the little boat without blowing up the whole boat?

    Been there.
    Done that. :yes:

    Iran Air Flight 655 was an Iran Air civilian passenger flight from Tehran to Dubai. On 3 July 1988, the aircraft operating this route was shot down by the United States Navy guided missile cruiser USS Vincennes. The incident took place in Iranian airspace, over Iran's territorial waters in the Persian Gulf, and on the flight's usual flight path. The aircraft, an Airbus A300 B2-203, was destroyed by SM-2MR surface-to-air missiles fired from Vincennes.

    The catchy music makes me forget that this is a weapon of death that will eventually be used on the Ferguson protesters a new catch phrase will emerge "hands up don't laser"

    Prolly cost 50 billion to develop and all it did was knock off a six pack from a waiters cart and knock a toy airplane off course. I see Obamas spending wisely

    The system is operated through a flat screen monitor and a gaming system-like controller integrated into the ship's combat system, so anyone with experience playing common video games can operate the weapon.:grad:
