What's the most effective anti-air system in the world? I'm talking about getting everything, drones, helicopters, jets, etc.
The best way to shoot a plane down is to the send another plane after it.
>mfw turks wont dare fly planes, even on their own territory now
Oh, well then I'll just dump my anti-air folder.
It was in my AA folder, so presumably yes.
Different targets requires different means. You can kill drone with system developed to intercept ballistic missiles, but this is stupid. To kill drone people use on system, to kill airplane - another.
It's a ship based anti missle 20mm Gatling gun basically. If it can tear the ass out of a missle, what reason couldn't it take down planes and drones?
I'm not being sarcastic, I'm legitimately wondering.
Any aircraft that's even a slightly serious threat is going to be attacking from range with guided weapons. Even the higher caliber CIWS aren't meant for that kind of altitude /range.

Completing my folder dump from last night, this I believe is a point defense gun on a soviet warship.
Aegis. A US cruiser or destroyer equipped with vertical launch SAMs with that radar system can use it to incredible effect against mass targets. If a plane tries to buzz the ship, the radar packs enough punch to fry it's electronics, out to a couple miles.
When money is no issue - the best AA available right now is the SM-3 block Ib.
When compared to 40N6 missile from S-400, the SM-3 is better in every quantifiable way. Plus that sweet dual active radar/IR seeker...
It's worth mentioning that it is in active duty, when from S-400 complex only radar and command vehicles are ready. It still uses missiles from S-300 MPU.
When price/performance ratio is important then nothing beats Tor M2. Good CRAAM, anti fixed and rotary-wing defence in a sweet, condensated and mobile package.
Probably the Russian's combination of S-300s, Buks, Pantsirs, Tunguskas etc.
Pure ground-based defence won't cut it, but throw in a reasonable, defensively-orientated air force, and you'll do fairly well.
>guided weapons attacking
But the CIWS will just shoot it down. You literally cannot hit something that is protected by a CIWS unless it is with small caliber projectiles.
Goalkeeper CIWS weapon systems are employed at static installations such as military bases, shooting iraqi mortars out of the sky.
