"New Patriot Target Practice a Success
A new version of the Patriot anti-missile destroyed a cruise missile drone
in flight on Saturday, the Army announced.
     It's the first time the Patriot Advanced Capability-3, or PAC-3, has been
used against an 'air-breathing'  target such as a cruise missile or jet
    The Patriot so far has been successful in three attempts to shoot down
ballistic missiles, such as the Russian Scud, that fly into space before
falling back to Earth. Cruise missiles fly close to the  Earth's surface.
     The short-range Patriot is planned to be a part of a larger system of
battlefield missile defenses. Each missile costs $3.1 million; the PAC-3 
program is expected to cost $4.5 billion."
