Spain to Host 4 USN Augis BMD Ships

Spain Will Port U.S. Ships to Support NATO Missile Defense

Seems rumours of US decoupling are somewhat exaggerated. Rather pathetic that Europe itself has no BMD capabilities beyond a few countries with PAC3.
I'm not sure if it's no capabilities, the Spanish F-100 AEGIS destroyers, the Dutch LCF's, Franco-Italian Horizons, UK Daring's, German F-124's (altogether about 23 ships) would all be quite capable of carrying out the BMD role)

The Dutch have already participated in BMD drills with their boats.

Horizons and Darings can't… period.

We 'could' have had an ABM capability, but we ignored best advice back in the day and didn't fit the Mk41 VLS so we could stick SM-3's down the holes.
