US MILITARY CONDUCTS SUCCESSFUL MISSILE DEFENSE TEST

The U.S Military has successfully completed a missile defense test to knock down down any intercontinental Ballistic Missile class target.

The tests were carried out with two ground-based interceptors used in the field. The U.S. Missile Defense Agency said two ground-based interceptors were used in the test. One destroyed the re-entry vehicle, and the other “looked at the resulting debris and remaining objects, and, not finding any other re-entry vehicles, selected the next ‘most lethal object’ it could identify, and struck that,” it said.

MDA Director Lieutenant General Sam Greaves called the test a “critical milestone.”

“The Ground-based Midcourse Defense system is vitally important to the defense of our homeland, and this test demonstrates that we have a capable, credible deterrent against a very real threat,” Greaves said.

The U.S Military can boost against the likes of North Korea and others who own heavy missile systems.
