  1. Desert Tortise would not like seeing an S-300 fail. He seems awfully fond of them.

      It *IS* a very formidable system. But it isn’t perfect. I’ll say this, though, BadgerBuddy. The S-300 is actually a family of missiles, with quite varying characteristics, and as best I can tell, this is one of the early variants.

  2. Wow, glad I’m not the poor SOB that has to blow that in place. Although it’d be cool to watch it go, don’t think I’d want to be the guy placing the charges.
