The resultant confusion was further compounded because of the high degree of mutual interdependence that necessarily existed between Army and Navy units. Assuming you have a suitable tech for lobbing missiles out of a gravity well, a missile engagement is even more in favor of the surface, because once a missile is fired all it leaves behind is its launcher, probably of insignificant value as a target. If there was a single person or handful of people on the warship manually trying to search for targets, aim, and fire the weapons, it would be a slow process. With good enough targeting information transmitted from recon drones through a computerized system, space warships could help kill even individual vehicles or even individual enemy soldiers from orbit when possible. Using a hundred-thousand-ton warship to kill a couple enemy soldiers riding around in a truck might superficially seem wasteful, but there is next to no marginal cost in the preceding scenario. But afterwards, a warship would still have practically unlimited ammo for its electrically-powered beam weapons running off nuclear reactors. Given the firepower and capabilities possible with one space warship, imagine what a fleet of thousands of such warships (or more) could do against a planet. Such would arrive long after each warship has moved to another location in the vastness of space, perhaps millions of kilometers away from its previous position. A planet could have gigawatt to terawatt range beam weapons, but the effective range of such against space warships would tend to be less than vice versa: In a duel at up to light-minutes or greater range with light speed weapons, a space warship fleet will tend to win against a planet, as the immobile planet with zero unpredictable acceleration can be engaged at extreme range. But, in that scenario, billions of tons of spaceships might exist without the planet necessarily being able to launch more than a proportionally minuscule amount in a day. Optionally, the columns of fire in the atmosphere created by the preceding might “blind” remaining defenses for critical seconds while missiles with nuclear warheads arrived right behind them. the contest between beam weapons on mobile warships vs beam weapons on planets is completely lopsided in favor of the planetary defenders. I was struck by how it assumed the space ship had amazing beam weapons capable of penetrating the atmosphere, but for some unknown reason ground defenders using that same beam weapon technology simply lose. the level of firepower used in destroying anti-space weapons from extreme range would need to be limited. Other parts of the post also seemed to blow off the problem of detecting targets on a planetary surface. From the very beginning there was friction between Army and Navy from the highest headquarters to the lowest ranks. In a location famed for making the finest celebratory drink, never have I experienced anywhere else quite so adept at toasting those we mourn. As the first step in recognition of the approaching threat to the Marianas, Carolines, and Palaus, the Japanese high command reorganized the command structure in the Central Pacific. It was agreed that the command of each separate island was to rest with the senior Army or Navy officer present. For example, all of the air strength in the Central Pacific was naval, under command of the Central Pacific Area Fleet. Returning to beams, the whole sensor-blinding issue also heavily favors the planet, because finding a passive sensor on a planet surface approaches the level of trying to find a guy with binoculars somewhere on the nearside of the planet. The failure to carry out the principle of a unified command was to prove seriously detrimental to the efficiency of future Japanese operations in the Central Pacific. Speaking of the Central Pacific Area Fleet headquarters, a Japanese naval commander captured on Saipan said, “It is a purely administrative command and has no tactical significance. Such would not be their primary mission, and initially the warships would attack more valuable targets. Yet, if there are a large number of robotic recon drones searching for enemy vehicles and soldiers, transmitting their precise coordinates, a computerized fire control system on the warship could shoot thousands of designated targets per hour, continuing for hours or days if necessary. short black trench coat women ladies double breasted trench coat hooded mac coat gabardine trench coat ladies coats jackets trench coats black mens formal trench coat mens long hooded trench coat mens pea coat brown top trench coats trench coats male trench coat winter long trench raincoat best trench coat women trench coat guys mens small trench coat trench coat store trench coat for rain black hooded trench coat grey womens trench coat beige trench coat cheap shop trench coats womens brown coat navy blue womens trench coat mens black long trench coat black trench coats men ladies blue trench coat navy trench coat ladies trench raincoat for women mens black trench
