Corrected typo

Changed shipping to ship. The missile is used to take out ships not shipping. Mary Ash 02:16, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Did some minor copy-editing for clarity.Mary Ash 02:25, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
The term of art, however, is anti-shipping missile. Howard C. Berkowitz 02:30, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Changed to extended response

Changed to expanded response which is the correct terminology not expanded range. I wrote about this when I was a military affairs reporter. Mary Ash 17:01, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, I had the material reviewed by the manufacturer. Could you give me the source that you used in your reporting? In general, for our definition of expertise, one has to have been, at least to some extent, a practitioner -- weapons systems engineer, targeteer, tactical user. Reporting alone, in publications without technical reviewers, may not necessarily qualify for changing text unless there is sourcing.

For what publications were you a military reporter? Howard C. Berkowitz 17:06, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
