Ballistic, Cruise Missiles Intercepted in Formidable Shield 2017

Published: October 16, 2017 | By Missile Defense Project

On October 15, the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) announced that ships from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States participated in a live-fire integrated air and missile defense (IAMD) scenario. During the exercise, the Arleigh-Burke class guided-missile destroyer USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) tracked and defeated a medium-range ballistic missile target with a SM-3 Block IB interceptor. At the same time, the Spanish frigate SPS Alvaro de Bazan (F101) and the Dutch frigate HNMLS Tromp (F803) fired Evolved Sea Sparrow Missiles against three antiship cruise missiles, successfully intercepting their targets. It was the first time that NATO ships had conducted air defense missions to protect another ballistic missile defense ship. Following the exercise, the USS McFaul (DDG-74) successfully test-fired a Standard Missile-6 (SM-6) as part of the system’s flight certification process.
I just received the book and it is truly the last word on the 135.  The most remarkable thing to me is that for each variant, the author has listed every airframe and briefly provided its service history.  So every 135 ever built is covered that way!

Here another interesting article in the issue.  B)
