JDAM “Sinks” Battleship
January 3, 2006
Congress is debating whether to discard the navy’s last remaining battleships. Strategypage explains why:
There also is the matter of JDAM, GPS guided smart bombs dropped from carrier and land-based aircraft. These have provided all-weather precision-attack capability in close support of ground troops, in both Afghanistan and Iraq. The troops prefer these to artillery, because they are more flexible and accurate. Fire support from ships is limited by the availability of deep water, which can be a problem in places like Afghanistan and most of Iraq.
No banners. No pop-ups. No kidding.
