    Actually Thaad and Patriot pac-3 are complementary to eachother, in which Patriot pac-3 intercepts a missile in it's terminal stage of flight (in atmospher), while Thaad intercepts a missile while it is in Stratosphere. So, if Thaad fails in intercepting it P Pac-3 would do that. I admire UAE for acquiring Patriot pac-3, Patriot pac-2, Thaad and Pantzir-s1 which makes it's airspace fully protected.

    The SM-6 is also a great missile agianst both cruise missile and aircraft. Though slower at around Mach 3.5 its classified range is said to be much greater then the SM-2 of about 90mi, 144km.

    ABM's are useless... If a nuclear missile is coming at you and the ABM took it down, where would all the nuclear fallout go? That's right.

    The ABM could fire back with a stronger nuclear missle.

    @ BLACKEAGLE

    My assertion is right. PAC-3 can destroy aircraft. This has happened in Iraq in 2003; PAC-3 destroyed an F-18 on April 2.

    Unfortunately, as lethal PAC-3 is to enemy missiles; it is also as much lethal to friendly aircraft. Naughty system. :lol:

    US ABM systems are capable of tracking many targets simultaneously. The remaining depends upon number of launchers and interceptors deployed.

    Against Iraq; PAC systems downed several missiles on various occasions in 2003.

    Currently, a single launcher of PAC-3 carries 16 missiles (interceptors).

    Only military installations are expected to be heavily protected IMO.

    You think that I am joking?

    A PAC-3 missile shot down a US Navy F/A-18 fighter aircraft killing a pilot.

    US military specialists do not necessarily reveal all details about their weapons on press.

    Yea, they can be shot down, GCC have three layers of anti-missile defense, Arab countries will participate in defending GCC for sure.

    No offence, but your lack of understanding my input in previous posts really irritates me now. I called you to review them again and you will find the answer. Anyway, that was in 2003 and several US aircraft got shot by friendly fire. I don't know whats your point here? that Patriot pac-3 is a failed system?

    Damaging a military base with overwhelming firepower is possible. Point is that how US will act is open only to speculation. US has history of fooling opponents with deception and psyops techniques. Study Iraq war in detail and you will understand this. We do not know if F22 would be even stationed so close to Iran, in case of hostilities. Most probably not.

    War is a very complex business. USAF will be all over Iranian airspace employing various jamming techniques and conducting precision strike missions. Simultaneously, their will be heavy barrage of cruise missiles on vital Iranian targets to destroy command and control systems in place. Without co-ordination, Iran will be blinded and its resistance capability will be minimized.

    I also read in some books that US currently have a system which can track movement of almost every vehicle in a country simultaneously. US used this system in Iraq when US forces approached Karbala. At this time, Iraqi divisions decided to stop US military advances in the open through co-ordination but they were destroyed so fast that Iraqi commanders were baffled.

    And Iranian missile strikes in GCC nations, will give them the initiative to help US and Israel openly.

    Also, cruise missile is a much better choice for a military target then a ballistic missile because of its much greater accuracy and less chance of veering off-track.

    Am I writing Pashtun?

    My point from the begining is that PAC-3 has capability to shoot down aircraft. You challenged this assertion in the first place.
