          Waste a brand new, multimillion dollar missile on them?

          My question was - who is the intended target? Whenever we develop new weapon systems, we have a specific enemy or threat in mind. In this case, I'm am guessing we have the Chinese navy in mind.

            They had Russia and China in mind when they developed this missile

              Do you think that this new weapons system will give the PRC pause when they decide that the whole of the South China Sea is within their national limits?

                Possibly unless they find a way to counter these missiles

                    Oh...I don't know. Back in the early '70s on Intrepid we did a pretty good job of finding them even with those old sonobuoys and "dippin' sonar' rigs we had on the old Sea Kings, especially up in the Barents Sea where it was so shallow.

                      Submarine silence may have advanced a bit since you were aboard the Fighting I.

                        Which was probably true back in the 70's, until HSwMS Gotland from Sweden was requested by the US navy in 2005 to join them in war-games. Diesel electric subs from other navies have been able to sneak up to the US carriers in the same fashion.

                          The LRASM is the replacement for the Harpoon, which is obsolescent.
