We need to bring back the York; SHORAD is becoming more important than ever, and that thing had BBRRRTTT to spare, and can save Iron Dome or Patriot shots for other targets.

As someone pointed out to me.
It missed its target by two miles, and is slower then most other glide vehicles that have been tested.

Why do you people think this is new and that we havnt don't it yet? The US has been working on this stuff since 2011

With 170kt warhead (Minuteman-III) two miles off is a difference between hardened target being destroyed and hardened target being shaken, but not stirred.
It's an early prototype though, there is a room for improvement a common occurrence in weapon development.

Just heard today that it was actually 25 miles off target. Don't know how true that is, and I am still trying to verify the source.

A near direct hit with a nuke does less to a hardened target than most think. Nukes are for soft targets, namely cities. Even if you don't destroy the actual tooling, every factory in the city will be mission killed by the subsequent evacuations.

Two dozen miles not two miles...
