Thats what the newspapers all say. But before the July 9 test, the
PAC-3 had 7 consecutive hits. On this month's test, a pair of Lockheed
PAC-3s were fired simultaneously against an F-4 drone using all the
countermeasures in the book, and a standard RB. The plane
was blown to smithereens but the missile kept coming.
