Atlas V had a "partial failure" where the second stage cut off 4 seconds early in a 900 second burn; but even the customer (NRO) still called it a success. If Falcon 9's aborted secondary payload doesn't count as a failure then I can hardly see how Atlas' slightly lower orbit does, which means it's at 54 successful launches and counting.
Delta IV-M on the other hand has never had even a partial failure, 21 launches going. The Delta IV-H had one partial failure but that's a rather different animal.
Also neither vehicle has ever had a total failure.
Defense now throws millions of dollars at game developers, tasking them with making war look like just another extreme sport.
Yea I don't suppose you have a citation on that one? Closest I've heard of is the America's Army series, and they're pretty open about that being a recruiting/education tool.
However, Boeing has pulled the Delta IV from the market, so there will be a limited number of these launched in the future.
Got a citation on that? Last I heard there was no definitive plan to end the Delta IV program, in fact it would be insane considering Atlas' precarious engine situation.
No, it isnt.
Well can't argue with that, I'm convinced.
