I'm not sure I'd call Horn of Africa a "zero anti-ship threat environment." At least a couple of tankers have been hit in the Gulf of Aden (MV Limburg in 2002, for example), and the Red Sea is a serious hot zone these days. Honestly, I'm not sure there is such a thing as a zero-threat environment in any place we also have a plausible need for strike missiles.bobbymike said:Ships can't be two places at once. I always thought this configuration could work in a zero anti-ship threat environment. Park one off the Horn of Africa and target a big part of that and the Middle East.
Then keep the high end ships for the high end fight.
