Throw money at Rosoboronexport and get a 3M-54E Club-K system: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbUU_9bOcnM

Includes terminal-phase supersonic sprint in the ASM variant (Shown at 6:45 in the video). Apparently even the new US carriers couldn't defend against >1 missiles at once.

I know it is done for practical reasons, but the ideal of a missile-in-a-shipping-container is straight up James Bond Bad Guy.

Beaten by the person that brought up the F-35. And yeah, as I understand it that film errs on the side of presenting the procurement process as less of a corrupt cluster gently caress than it is in reality.

I missed that reference - since I wasn't referring the plot of a movie. Which I guess is scary

EDIT: The Bradley, in a way, ended up getting a starring role in the turkey-shoot called the Gulf War by blowing up more Iraqi vehicles than the Abrams. being destroyed more times by friendly fire than enemy action. 17 vs 3

So, I guess my favourite system would be some time of large sign saying, 'Please don't shoot me, I am on your side'

Here's a thing, basically an agricultural tractor mounted with 6 106mm recoiless rifles firing those beehive rounds mentioned earlier.

Bit lacking in imagination on the naming front.
