How to use interceptor in a sentence?

  1. Bill Gortney:

    One interceptor versus one warhead in mid-course is a failing proposition because they can produce more than we can ever possibly afford to put into the ground, we're going to need more capability to engage the threat throughout its flight, keep them on the ground, kill them on the (launch) rails, kill them in boost phase and then get more warheads in space in mid-course.

  2. Thomas Karako:

    That matters because when you fire your interceptor, you have to have an estimate of where( the threatening missile is) going to be.

  3. Captain Jeff Davis:

  4. Rick Lehner:
