Space Warfare Complete

Wow, we hit a satellite with a missile launched from a boat. Excuse me, it took three boats

I still can't figure out a good answer as to why we didn't use the 1985 version anti-satellite missiles. They are launched from an F-15, which I assume would be 1) cheaper than three ships to operate and 2) we already knew it worked.

My guess is that we are trying to show the Chinese that our anti-satellite missiles are bigger than theirs. Basically, it is an international pissing contest played out in space.
