Patriot and Aegis are useless?

Recommended Posts

Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono, in response to a question from the former Foreign Minister of Japan, made everyone doubt the technical capabilities of the American missile defense systems «Patriot» and «Aegis».

According to the test results of «Aegis» and its ground-based version of «Aegis Ashore», which use the SM-3 interceptor missiles, it turned out that they are capable of shooting down ballistic missiles only in ideal conditions. That is, when a missile flies along an unchanged path without any obstacles, which means that they are useless against Russian «Iskander» missiles.

As for the «Patriot» systems, they failed badly in Saudi Arabia, missing the attack at the refinery.

So why does Japan continue to purchase these defense systems «semblance» from the United States?

BMD will never be perfect, but it's far from useless. Hence why Japan is continuing to purchase them and the Russians are so triggered by these systems being place in Eastern Europe.

Because Japan is very dependent on the United States for military support....and survival against China & North Korea.

It's very easy to see who's a Russian bot on this forum and copy pastes his propaganda. They write on different a character font than usual and always have a paragraph saying how Russia is a victim, or how America is weak. I don't know what the mods and admins should do about this. But I once denounced one bot and the thread -and my post- were deleted a short while after.
