Any gunnery professionals can explain how does it EVEN works?!

This is referring to several initiatives under the high/hyper velocity projectile umbrella. Basically, a chemically or electrically driven ~155mm projectile that goes a whole lot faster than a normal howitzer round. Targeting is provided by existing sensors (Patriot, Q-53, Q-50, Sentinel, THAAD, etc) and passed to the gun via IBCS's network.

If it wasn't clear from the article this is a looooong way off.

Double-confirmed that M109, M777 and their munitions in CMANO doesn't marked air unit as valid, even missiles.

--------------
The U.S. Army’s Big Guns go to the South China Sea

Senior Army and Pentagon strategists and planners are considering ways to fire existing weapons platforms in new ways around the globe – including the possible placement of mobile artillery units in areas of the South China Sea to, if necessary, function as air-defense weapons to knock incoming rockets and cruise missiles out of the sky.

Alongside the South China Sea, more mobile artillery weapons used for air defense could also prove useful in areas such as the Middle East and Eastern Europe, officials said. Having mobile counter-air weapons such as the M109 Paladin, able to fire 155m precision rounds on-the-move, could prove to be an effective air-defense deterrent against Russian missiles, aircraft and rockets in Eastern Europe, a senior Army official told Scout Warrior.

...

Mobile air defenses such as an Army M777 or Paladin Howitzer weapon could use precision rounds and advancing fire-control technology to destroy threatening air assets such as enemy aircraft, drones or incoming artillery fire.

One of the platforms I supported in 2009 was a self-propelled 155-mm howitzer designed to supplement the XM777's capabilities and replace the M109 as a self propelled indirect fire platform. It carried a reduced load of ammunition to address weight restrictions for air transport, and maintained the kill power of "one shot one kill" smart rounds (essentially less amo, but more lethal with a typical combat load).

At that time, there were no rounds designed as anti-air weapons both because an indirect fire round's speed is significantly lower than that of a jet aircraft or worse, a missile, and because the smart targeting capability was a terminal event that didn't kick in until the round reached a specified distance from the firing platform and then searched for patterns of pre-programmed threats as the round fell to the ground.

There was an effort to include active armor capability on the platform, but that was designed to quickly fire at incoming munitions and missiles to either deflect or destroy the warhead before it impacted the vehicle. Engagements with the system took place in the final half-minute of a projectile's path toward the vehicle, with the detect, evaluate, fire, and hit time frame occurring in milliseconds before the round could impact the vehicle.

The article you cite sounds more like jingoism or perhaps a defense contractor's marketing pitch than solid military planning, at least in terms of what that planning consisted of in 2009.
Take care,

The three Spanish SH-3W (AEW) Sea King equipped with Searchwater radar were converted in utility transports between December 2015-January 2016, losing the Spanish Armada his AEW capability. Never were modernized or equipped with any type of ESM: https://foronaval.wordpress.com/2016/05 ... aqueteras/

The Admiral Kuznetsov will be modernised between 2017 and 2020, very sparse on details but an interesting development.

http://www.janes.com/article/60565/russ ... -the-mi-38

Russian MoD seems to be buying the Mi-38's, but no contracts as of yet. It would make sense to keep Kazan afloat.

Oscar II class will be modernised
The modified Oscar II boats will reportedly carry as many as 72 ASCMs, including a mix of 3M55 Oniks (SS-N-26 'Strobile') and 3M54 Klub (SS-N-27 'Sizzler') missiles.

Sweden orders replacement Torpedo "Torpedo 47" to replace "Torpedo 45" <- our naming is the best.
"Torpedo 47 will, among other things, be more durable, have a longer range and better speed performance than today's Torpedo 45," said Mikael Ericsson, head of underwater combat at the FMV.

The Tp 47 "will be equipped with both a passive and an active homing device and use wire communication like today's Tp 45"

South Korea's DAPA Selects HHI for KDX-III Batch II Destroyer Design & Construction
South Korea's Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) announced last week that Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) was selected as contractor for “KDX-III Batch-II Design and construction of the first hull”. The existing 7,600-ton KDX-III Batch I Aegis destroyers of the Republic of Korea Navy (ROK Navy) are based on the DDG 51 class of the US Navy.

In December 2013, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff decided to increase the number of Aegis destroyers from the current three to six by 2027 to strengthen its maritime combat capabilities against possible provocation from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

While all three destroyers of the second batch will likely not be build by HHI (most ROK Navy orders are split between HHI and DSME the two largest Korean naval shipyards), the Batch II will be designed by Hyundai. Delivery timetable is 2021 for launch of first ship after keel laying in 2020.

According to early information and rumors, KDX-III Batch-II will feature Hybrid-Electric Drive (HED) and BMD 5.1 system. Depending on export agreements, the vessels may receive gallium nitride technology radar components from Japan. The new class will also benefit from an improved electronic warfare suite (Sonata Next Generation), enhanced stealth features and indigenous hull-mounted sonar and active towed aray. Finally, KDX-III Batch-II may be the first South Korean vessel class to be fitted with directed energy weapons (not initially but as part of an upgrade).

Not to mention the top section of the hanger have wider room for double flaps, Su-35 will have a much protected home when the delivery comes.

---

I had a question though, since precision strike munition is widely acquired in this era, what if the bomb isn't drop right at the hanger, but rather the surface besides the gate? The plane might not be damaged without fragmentation munition, but surely can damage the surface and make it stuck, does it?

To cut off the pathway between the taxiway and hanger is also essential to stop the fighters, if not destroying them. Though why must it be paying extra attention to use drill bombs against hangers?

Its commonsense...you can repair a runway or access way fairly quickly. Replacing an plane and its support equipment takes a lot longer (months to years).

Seeing how the 054/A platform by now is a proven and mature one with multiple world-wide long-endurance deployments during anti-piracy in the Gulf of Aden, it makes sense for the CCG to request a 054A-based coast-guard ship. I would even say that the 4000 ton Type 818 would beat the 12.000 ton beast in terms of sea-keeping and endurance.
