I think that's where they try to sell people cars that will be ready for pickup while they're on deployment. Not sure, I avoid anything near car sales like the plague.

During the 2019 UK general election the media demanded a Jewish Labour mp apologise because she said the same Lazio fans you mentioned should get their heads kicked in for doing Nazi salutes on the streets of Glasgow

Probably (because they usually miss), but maybe not. There's only one way to find out, and letting yourself get bombed out of curiosity is a loving stupid strategy.

And on top of that the coverage area of C-RAM is pretty small, so it's not like they shoot down every rocket landing in the middle of fuckall nowhere. Do they hit a lot of rockets that probably would've hit a T-wall or Hesco or parking lot with a generic Toyota or something? Sure. But it's not like they're even engaging rockets targeting the field outside the base.

human life aside the ammo might cost more in dollars but the method to replenish ammo is streamlined compared to the logistics of replacing whatever random equipment gets blown up. You also have to factor in the cost paying people to sit around while some cheap comm tower gets replaced.

The rounds are $30 or less each last I checked. So one engagement is in the thousands of dollars range. Training rounds are way cheaper. The system itself is what gets pricy.
