Sure there are alternatives. The ones that make sense would be multiples of three. 3, 6, 9, 12, ...
If the launchers were grouped in threes, the battery would be triangular, and there would be threads here about the Illuminati or the Freemason
symbolism. Three launchers would also mean more command vans (to control more batteries) that sat idle more (since they would have to wait for the
launchers to recycle before engaging another target).
If the launchers were grouped in batteries of nine or twelve, there would still be threads on ATS tying the shape of the battery to some obscure group
by way of some equally obscure numerology...and the batteries would be too large to be practical...with that many service crews and vehicles, the
access roads would have to be wider (allowing more vehicle traffic) and the batteries would be more spread out (to insure sufficient space between
launchers) making the battery more vulnerable to attack and more difficult to site.
Six launchers per battery isn't the result of any Zionist / Satanic / Fill-in-the-blank conspiracy, it's simply the best compromise between all the
different factors that determine what makes the best battery configuration for that particular missile system...but there doesn't seem to be any way
to convince some people of a mundane explanation.
