Originally applied to any group of infantry primarily armed with projectile weapons, artillery has over time become limited in meaning to refer only to those engines of war that operate by projection of munitions far beyond the range of effect of personal weapons. These engines comprise specialised devices which use some form of stored energy to operate, whether mechanical, chemical, or electromagnetic. Originally designed to breach fortifications, they have evolved from nearly static installations intended to reduce a single obstacle to highly mobile weapons of great flexibility in which now reposes the greater portion of a modern army's offensive capabilities

Iran isn't holding her punches. Full steam ahead! :D But the US Carrier fleet has multilayer ballistic missile defenses. What's the range of this pup?

It can cover 300 km. And as for US Carrier fleet "multilayer ballistic missile defenses", it is a quite common fact that even the latest U.S.Ballistic Missile Defense System "Aegis" is Not-so-effective against ballistic missiles.

or they want you to think it is not effective against ballistic missiles,
if ever have a army i would make false advertisement like
"we can't stop that missile"
"we can't detect that stealth vehicle"
"we can't go faster than that aircraft"
when everyone think you "can't" do these, when a war broke out you can surprise everyone by actually doing these things.
winning a combat is more important than showing off during a relatively peace time.

never under estimate the power of element of surprise.

SURPRISE MOTHERF#CKER PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW

that is exactly what i thought when Iran "shoot down" that USA Drone several months ago. Iran army made a statement that their technology is not that behind from America's army.
or is it ?
