Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Jonathan Greenert:

    Some of our platforms, our people, and our systems will arrive late to the fight, they will arrive with insufficient ordnance. And they will be inadequately prepared to fight.

  2. Kenneth Davidson:

    If you look at the X-51, the size is slightly too big to put it on our current bombers, it was made as a demonstrator. There’s no weapon in it. There are no sensors on board for controlling the guidance. So we’re looking at making it more durable, getting the guidance control developed so that it can become a weapon system, developing the ordnance.
