#3 Six targets that are at the same range, same bearing, and stationary.

Yeah, that. File under "Rolling back the defense"

They can probably track 6 targets at once. Shooting them down is a bit more complicated and then there is that "reloading" thing. A bit slow & labor-intensive according to the video we saw the other day.

#5 Entertaining how the missile containers are made to look like Patriot containers. It's a step up from welded oil barrels "S-300 SAM".

#6 Go ahead, turn on your search and targeting radar and see what happens.

#7 Iran: "Always after me charms...
With science and lasers and HARMs.
No radar! I'd rather
Rely on me nazar
And pointy-toed slippers than arms."
