S500? Are you talking about the Mercedes S-Class six-cylinder S500?

You need to put a bit more info down.

Personally, not impressed.

Article

They've put all their eggs in one basket (the S500 system using several missile types for different threats).

We have several systems for different threat scenarios; THAAD, Patriot, GMD, SM3.

12 of one, half a dozen of the other? Maybe.

But I'll take a dedicated SYSTEM for a certain scenario over swapping missiles with a basic, all encompassing system.

Besides, it doesn't even look like they're projected to be in the field until 2020...at least in any real numbers that'd make a difference - which they won't.

Problem with a single system using multiple munitions for different threats is that it can be overwhelmed. Depending on the amount of launchers and how many of each missile type they hold they will run out. Its not exactly the fastest thing to reload a SAM battery...especially if SEAD is hunting you.

i don't think there are any flying airframes of the finished project flying just yet. there are however at least 2 platforms they used in the fly off.

i think they are going to do the B-21 the same way they did the B-2 and have a cool dog and pony show for the press and maybe a fly over a bit after that.

the airframe on the outside isn't anything that radical and the 'magic' is all on the inside, the EW and defencive systems alone are probably a sight to see.

i don't think they would use it in a small conflict so the only way that we will get any knowledge of its performance on the battlefield would sadly come at the cost of a war.


still i can't wait to see it...... how ever from what i have heard the airframe that lost was a looker and had some incredible systems that were deemed to expensive
