    even if you manage to shoot them and disable the explosive charge they are still going to do a decent amount of damage just from pure kinetic energy.  It's not like a cruise missile where you can blow it up somewhere safe.  Think of trying to defend against cannonballs from old style black powder cannon and you have the right idea only at longer range.  Besides, there is no defensive system that can handle 4,000 incoming projectiles at once.

    You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
