So they've demonstrated the capability to send out swarms of independently (self) controlled mini-formations simultaneously.

How many targets can Aegis handle at a time ? How much explosive is needed to disable the arresters on a carrier ? Only one of these targets, carrying that size payload needs to get through to each arrester bank (or the catapult). If the carrier cannot retrieve, or, alternatively, launch, its useless.

The fact that someone down voted your comment is prove that some folks are simply ignorant to the realities of the human condition. We as a nation need to prepare for shows like this BEFORE it happens. If not, it will probably be the next Pearl Harbor for the United States.

Thanks I was also surprised to see it downvoted. Hopefully counter measures to swarm attacks are being, or have been, developed.

What other valid response is there? Shall he submit a FOIA query to the Pentagon and see if they have something up their sleeve?
