    At 1:03......there is another young man wearing a Taliban beard style. What's with the young men of America now days? The Al Qaeda and Taliban, by extension, attack America on Sept 11th, we send our vaunted special forces over there to seek them out and kill them. So some of our special forces guys wear beards so they can blend in.....and kill the enemy. And then what.....all the young men in America suddenly adopt the bearded look of the jihadists??? What the heck men??? What planet am I on?


    We do have the Sea Hunter platform that can cater for US Navy needs

    I didn't know Vulcano is saboted sub caliber for 155mm. That's sad.

      there is also a cheaper kit from ATK which provide the same capability as the excalibur however lesser accurate but lesser price aswell haha the options are endless....

      Bae sys has another product the MS-SGP which uses rocket boosters to improve range while retaining warhead but of course its much more expensive...hehe

      Yeah, i thought they developed a round with the same lethality as the Excalibur and greater range, but it seems it's only a tradeoff.

      the aerodynamic shape of the Vulcano contributes to its range or else you would rather opt for a shorter range but heavier warhead excalibur from Raytheon. lol

      It's a waste of valuable payload.

    How dare you presenting the Vulcano family of guided projectiles under the "BAE Systems" brand...

      Vulcano was developed by OTO Melara, which is now part of Leonardo. BAE started a joint venture with Leonardo to implements the rounds into the Mk 45 naval gun and the M777 and M109 howitzers. So it's not really from BAE.
      Classic BAE Systems, they even claim the CV90 is theirs now.

    How about an Austal EPF Escort Support variant Ship equipped with a couple of those CUSV boats in the cargo hold + a Vulcano-armed 127mm on the rear deck and that Helios laser on the bow : ) ... just add a couple MQ-8 perhaps, a few torpedoes and call it a day ...
