    If you read the NTSB report, it details some of the procedure to move controls from one station to another. Clearly the operators didn't understand how it worked. It doesn't really sound overly...

    All I can say, unfortunately, is "Welcome to Earth". It's like that everywhere. It's too bad the donors don't have the vision, or are just too naive, to ensure that their donations are not...

    Maybe there are a bunch of rounds left and they don't want them to go to waste. Oh, wait. What am I saying?

    It's designed for hyper-velocity, but the test was performed at more conventional muzzle velocities, so I am not sure exactly what was accomplished.

    Using the past to predict the future, you should expect two things:
    1) With the new congress, disparate spending priorities make funding questionable for a CG(X) program at all.
    2) Assuming the...

    Very.

    But the real problem is to define a mission, then determine the armament needed. Then we can equip for that mission and then it will be deployed, presumably, one day.
