Why is the US Navy still playing electronic battleships
The US Navy is still using its own electronic warfare technology, despite President Donald Trump’s efforts to remove the ship from the naval fleet and move to a new electronic warfare strategy.
The US Navy used its own electromagnetic countermeasures to thwart a Chinese ballistic missile attack in the Strait of Hormuz in the Arabian Gulf earlier this month, according to a Navy report.
The new strategy called for a much more aggressive use of electromagnetic countermeasure systems to defeat Chinese cruise missiles.
The Navy had previously said that it was using the electronic warfare capability to defend against ballistic missile attacks.
It was not clear when the new strategy was developed or when it would be implemented.
In addition to the ballistic missile defense, the Navy was developing a new cruise missile defense system called the PAC-3, which would rely on the same technology the Chinese have been developing.
The missile defense strategy calls for the Navy to be ready to defend the country from ballistic missiles at sea.
It is also intended to deter attacks on the US homeland from cruise missiles by China, Russia and North Korea.
The plan also calls for developing an electronic warfare system, called PAC-4, which the Navy intends to use to fight ballistic missiles off the US mainland.
The use of PAC-1 and PAC-2 has become controversial.
The PAC-5 system is intended to counter cruise missiles off Russia’s Pacific coastline.
In a statement, the US National Security Council said the Navy’s new strategy would focus on “more aggressive, non-conventional, and counter-propagating electronic warfare options, which will allow us to achieve our nation’s objectives and keep the US safe in the Pacific.”
The US will continue to rely on its traditional, nonconventional electronic warfare capabilities, which it is expected to have until 2020, the NSC said.
The Navy is also expected to develop its PAC-6 system, which is meant to counter ballistic missiles on the continental United States.
