Hi, having worked on the PATRIOT system for 4 years in the Army I know itís capabilities and also exactly long of tooth this system is. Heck, it had been under development off and on for something like 15 years before I fired one back in í86. That would make this baby almost 30 years old.

Now, Iím not talking an anti-missle system. PATRIOT was never designed for that. (We ended up testing the system on a LANCE out in white-sands one exercise and suddenly the system was branded an ďAnti-missleĒ system). It is an excellent anti-aircraft system and we had great confidence in itís hit rate.

But what is going to replace it? Arrow? I havenít been paying attention for some time so can someone enlighten me?
