"THE TEST OF THE PHALANX WEAPON SYSTEM IS COMPLETE."
It gets tested all the time where I am at. At when I say tested, I mean actually used to hit the incoming. I have seen it go off several times over my head and right above me. Cool light show though.
Cool light show indeed. I remember very distinctively seeing it take out mortars aimed at H6 housing at Balad all the time.
Yeah - when I went to Balad a couple of weeks ago I heard it go off several times. I was thinking it sure would be nice to have one of those at Liberty.
Fast forward two weeks: I get back to Liberty and there's this nice new Phalanx system sitting less than a kilometer from my CHU.
Is there a unclass wiki on this or am I going to have to fire up the siprnet on monday

Saw them on the USS Saipan.
There are much cooler things in use though.

Siprnet is for losers
