Absolutely nonsense. Saudi Air Defense relies heavily on the Patriot system and has done pretty well against missiles from its first test against Saddam Hussein missiles during the Gulf War to this date against Houthies missiles. The Houthies have launched more than 200 missiles so far and all have been intercepted successfully by the Patriot.Patriot is fine for aircraft but it is pretty horrid when it comes to defending against ballistic missiles.
What experience do you have?Experience. I dont believe the later versions of Patriot are signficantly improved over the earlier ones, despite what we are told regarding its ability to intercept ballistic missiles. In saying that I think it is effective against aircraft.
