Navy lacks plan to defend against Russian-built missile

Tony Capaccio of Bloomberg reveals that the "U.S. Navy, after nearly six years of warnings from Pentagon testers, still lacks a plan for defending aircraft carriers against a supersonic Russian-built missile, according to current and former officials and Defense Department documents." Concern exists that the missile, known as the "Sizzler" may be purchased by Iran. A Pentagon budget document shows that the Navy has until April 29 to report on how it plans to defend against this weapon.
