An interesting paper about missile defense of Chicago during the Cold War. Thinking the unthinkable.
We visited a Nike Site while in Cub Scouts. I have no idea which one.
I served in a Marine unit for one year that shot similar but smaller HAWK (Homing All The Way Killer) Missiles, defending from low flying attack aircraft. We were successful - Yuma, Arizona was never attacked while I was there. The Hawks were used during the first few years of the Vietnam War, and Israel used them effectively during their wars.
It is not so easy to hit a fast jet aircraft. A good thing the bad guys never launched.
