Even better the shot pellets are 'cold' with no emissions so the only way to detect the shot is with active sensors, which means you just waved a big sign saying "Here I am. Shoot me!"

Or even cheaper option, just bolt on a disposable missile pack or two. So the next time a ship full of kids tries to be clever, the system just fires off its missiles while locking on with the BFG.

Both would be highly effective. each time forces engaged new tactics would have to evolve. A new tactic would probably work once or twice but if used too many times it would turn into a deathtrap.

So what SPF do you need to protect against a fleet of angry warships???

If you can't go back, you'll have to go black(globe), to absorb all that radiation.
