So, who's misrepresenting the situation?

...i think they got mixed up with 'unclear' and 'nuclear'..only one letter transposed makes a lot of difference.

$5 million each..a lot of money if someone inadvertently presses the button.

The US has confirmed Thailand has asked for them...and the dolts here deny anything is happening !

Why does Thailand need missiles?

 

One would think that under the current climate, the main enemy is the horrible farang, his money, his leasehold of the pool villa, carrying a  METV visa and who dares to enter the kingdom more then x times a year!!!

To keep YL supporters scared I expect

if you look up the missle on Wikipedia the cost of the missle actually IS $1.2 million.

 

However that is only the cost of the missle itself. It does NOT cover the launcher, the cost of the retrofit on the ship itself nor anything else.

 

The proposed purchase, it said, included containers, spare parts, support and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment. 

 

All of the above will be needed to make the system work and none of the above come free.

 

Sorry wanderluster but you didn't do your homework as I did.

 

It is not getting caught with your hand in the cookie jar but not stating the FULL cost of the system and not just the missile itself which on its own without the rest of the equipment, spares, manuals, training etc it is just a lump of very expensive metal.

 

 

It is great that we have staunch junta supporters such as yourself to set us right on the actual procurement costs of these weapons.

So it's not like I could just tape one to my Toyota Yaris and press launch. Bummer.

I supose that you could and then light the blue touch paper.

 

It would increase both the 0-100 kph acceleration time and the top speed my put you in the Guiness book of records.

 

I am not sure that I would like to be in the car if it hits something solid though.
