    yes, easily, and for cheap.

    however, if the air-defense is in ukraine, then *NO*
    the interception rate spikes to 110%
    and quite literally nothing gets in or through,

    Short answer: yes

    Long answer: yes, but this is why you have a multi layered defense. Save your larger interceptors for larger threats. You don’t need a pac3 to take out a styrofoam lawnmower drone.

        USN and USAF both operate laser-based missile defense systems. Army is working on a palletizing system.
        Israel is developing one too, but that'll likely be more static.

        I had a middle class upbringing in the US, I'm just not moronic. When Iraqi militias shell military bases with mortars and fpv's what do you think they are doing? They are learning the best ways to overcome various combinations of US AA systems. That's how thy cooked those three Americans. All Biden can do is a retaliatory airstrike here and there, but its nothing compared to the insights these militias can gain and pass along to other militaries.

        Sorry if reality frightens you, I'd suggest killing yourself

    Do you have more missiles than your enemy has interceptors? If so, then yes. If not, then no.

    Also, keep in mind that if you're facing an opponent with a functional and competent air force you probably aren't going to get close enough to use stuff like cruise missiles and drones to overwhelm them, as seen recently. Drones and cruise missiles are easy to shoot down from the air, and an aerial interception takes a lot of pressure off your interceptor missiles.

    So if you want to overwhelm an opponent like the US, you probably need to use a ton of ballistic missiles. Or be close enough to them that you can spam cruise missiles/drones and not have them all get intercepted by the air force.

      They absolutely do. The thing thirdies don't realize is that their spam doesn't have infinite range, is useless if it has no method of finding and accurately targeting, and that your spam can also be countered by enemy intelligence noticing the massive buildup in missiles and missile launch systems before you spam and then blow them all up.

      US can also literally drop pallets of stealth cruise missiles from cargo planes lol

    It can work if you have a massive amount of cheap expendable rockets, and mix them with precision rockets. The problem is stockpiling them and degrading the enemy radar. Radar can now pick and spot out priority targets. Perhaps loading a few missiles with a bunch of chaff could and timing them or purposely getting hit could negate radar but thats dubious with tech now. Oh yeah and range is another large issue, the enemy can see you before you can make an impact/

        like in pic the patriot battery only have 8 missiles ready to fire. So 9 drones is a break point.

        I presume they have turret tech firing cheap rounds for cheap drones. Or even British inventing some lazer costing few quid a shot. Nevertheless on media all I see is patriot and other rocked based systems. And the system costs billions. Is this just a marketing tactics ?

        In general I'm just amazed by the contrast how cheap drones destroyed multimillion costing tanks with crews. Don't they have math professors working in there ? And from all the place Iranian drones. A country heavy sanctioned and lacking in tech because of it.

    Another goncerntrolling thirdworldoid cope thread. No, western air defense cannot be simply overwhelmed with swarm cheap/fake drones and shit, at least for now. You dumbasses act like US does not have stockpiles of hundreds of thousands of air to air and surface to air missiles. A sidewinder cannot swat a shahsneed. Missiles have limited shelf life so we better shoot them before they expire. Even then, do you fricking realize just how many fricking missiles we have rotting away in storage because we don't need them (yet). How many western warships were hit in the red sea so far, and what's the ETA to outproduce western industrial capacity in your chinkshit drone sweatshops?

    Imagine you fly a swarm of cheap toy drones and have those million dollar miles shooting them down, then the real drones fly in still saturated with fake drones and start dropping bombs. Lmao, yeah missile defense systems already have their problems but they multiply when it's a shit ton of things they have to shoot down.

      You don't need to imagine, this is exactly what Iran tried doing a few days ago. They fired about 150 OWA drones and some ~50 actual cruise missiles. The end result is all of them got shot down by aircraft before they even reaches Israel's air defense system, as the drones travel less than 150 knots and are easily interdicted. The cruise missiles travel faster at 400+ kts, but aircraft can still catch up.

        Im not really sure what the point of launching the shasneeds and cruise missiles was

        Those two things are not intercepted by the same systems that intercept the BM, so they really didnt even “absorb” any of the firepower to get the BMs through

    if your goal to defeat the enemy defenses is to spend 10x the amount you normally would have spent and only inflict 1/10th the amount of damage you would have inflicted without their defenses, then their AA worked perfectly well

    the US has ship lasers and truck lasers that have a range of up to 5 miles. They are only a couple years old but they are starting to install them on ships. if you just put them on a bunch of trucks you can stop a swarm pretty easily. Apparently they can be scaled up to 120kw in the future.

    The cost something like $20 a shot. A lot cheaper than a multi million dollar missile. I have no idea how a patriot missile can cost more than a tomahawk though.

    Ideally you would do some sort of risk management/prioritization which is probably what Ukraine is doing.

    If you see a huge missile/drone barrage, then what is actually more important for your war effort? Your super important military assets, personnel and infrastructure or some ancient shitty commie apartment complex full of 90 year old Ukrainian babushkas? The general populace is going to be furious anyway for Russia killing their grandma's anyway so it might be better to protect your vital assets. That's just war.

    Yes, anon, in a vacuum or in a moronic military, it can very much get overwhelmed and depleted.

    That is why you have layered defenses of strategic AD systems like Patriot, long range AD like SAMP/T, short range AD like Crotale, MANPADS and Flaks.
