Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Yes, it's possible. PAAMS needs a software update, and we need to fit A90 cells to the front, but all designed in.
  2. I thought the T45 was for defending us from 'tennis/cricket balls'....or have I missed something here?
  3. tennis balls that come down after going up. A bit like an overhead smash....
  4. It was cricket balls.

    It's all balls.
  5. Are you suggesting that it ignores any track without an ascent profile?
  6. Balls adjusted
  7. To engage a wave-skimming supersonic anti-ship missile approaching head-on, the T45's Sampson radar has to be able to detect and correctly classify an object with the radar cross-section (RCS) of a cricket ball in order to cope with any sea clutter. Quite a tall order but it is designed to do it.
  8. JJ - I was being glib!
  9. .

    Amazing, Fantastic British research is now trying to make cricket balls go at Mach 3 !

  10. Roger that! You'd be surprised at what weapons systems do ignore a profile without ascent profile!
  11. Are glibs as threatening as cricket balls?
  12. Glibs are only threatening in packs. Singly they are easy prey for SAMPSON.
