ABSTRACT
The article considers the importance of the long-range surface-to-air missile systems to the U.S. Army's air and missile defense capability. According to the 2007 U.S. Army Modernization Plan, the Raytheon Mim-104 Patriot low-to-high altitude surface-to-air missile system will be a key air and missile defense element for the next two decades. The primary elements of the plan were the introduction of the Guidance Enhanced Missile Plus missile and the Pac-3 missile.
