OTH radar is contingent on either a space based or airborne platform since radar waves basically travel in a straight line.
The "skin" on missiles is not thick, so even a near miss can k ...


no it doesn't . OTH uses the ionicsphere to bounce the radar signals. No dependence on space assets.

Ionospheric reflection OTH systems are not useful in targeting because backscatter reduces resolution. It is only useful for early warning capabilities where you need only know that something is proceeding in a general direction within some wide speed band so that it can be better identified by a higher resolution system.

So... you're going to have radar guidance to hit a target you haven't actually provided....

space base weapons!

huh!

radiation weapons works better in the vacumn of space,
instead of the pesky atmosphere which wipes out the effective range of radiation based weapons!

ha ha ha


so, more surface skimming weapons,
and Submarine launch nuclear weapons are becoming the pinnacle weapons system for nuclear delivery!

gosh!
