Long Range seems to mean a lot longer than it did when LRPF was first proposed for the Canadian Army.
And it is interesting to see the spiral evolution resulting in common launchers and missiles independent of the launcher.

A SkySabre Battery mounted on trucks could be re-roled to launch SSM missiles of any sort.

Since the CSC is getting the Sea Ceptor, it would make sense for the army to be told to adopt the Skysabre system and doing that now would allow both the Army and RCN to become familiar with that weapon system and sort out storage and handling procedure, reducing issues as the CSC is brought into service.

I think the major benefit of using the Sea Ceptor will be its soft launch versus the AIM-120?
