    Default SLAM RAM

    It was here at West Point today, so I figured I'd snap a couple of pics for you guys.

    I told the Raytheon dude that they looked very "GI Joe-ish"

    The first thing I thought was SA-6 but I guess there is a "small difference in size"

    Nice. Is there a separate radar vehicle, or are do the missiles aquire and track their own targets via their on-board radars?

    Edit: I think I see a telescoping boom-mounted radar, on there.

    I talked to one of the exchange cadets here a few weeks ago about that. I guess ADA is where the bottom of the class goes.


    Nice to know they got my back :P


    p.s. you're going to crash and burn this weekend

    Haha, yeah. Thats def the bottom of the barrel. But honestly, when was the last time we had a credible airborne threat? Korean War? I mean you guys bomb them back into the stone age anyways, theres really use for ADA when fighting states who have no air force left.

    And about this weekend, we'll see what happens. If anyone can get a little magic going, its Bobby Ross. And we're the Army, we don't "crash and burn," thats up to you fly boys.

    PATRIOT saved the lives of 34 of the USs top military brass in Kuwait when it shot down an incoming TBM whose trajectory would have taken into the very center of the command center! I call that an air threat!!

    There's a lot of hot chicks in the ADA units too!

    But honestly, I wonder why nobody thought of doing something like this earlier, like back when the AMRAAM was first coming online and we had the Soviets to worry about. Kind of like the Chapparal and the Sidewinder.

    I was just talking about the threat from air craft. But over the horizen missiles remain a threat. I just like to bust my buddies' balls about being ADA guys.

    @ USMA:
    ADA: if it flies, it dies
    Nice pics. I always thought it was cool when the Army brought new stuff for us to get a look at...It almost always occurred around branch selection time...Thanks for the win vs. Cinci on Homecoming, made my trip

    In the 4 years I was at Woops, ADA was only ranked once, I think it was '83. My year Armor got ranked, & I remember FA getting ranked...

    Oh, yeah, BEAT AIR FORCE!

    Hell yea! I was at the Quarterback Luncheon yesterday. Got me really fired up for tomorrow. Branch night is coming up next Sunday. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get my crossed rifles. But the current cadet rumor is that Armor went out at at 720, so there are gonna be some pretty unhappy dudes come Sunday night.
