Description
The Phalanx CIWS advanced radar-controlled gun system provides superior defense against close-in air and surface threats.

The Phalanx Close-In Weapon System is a rapid-fire, computer-controlled, radar-guided gun system designed to defeat anti-ship missiles and other close-in air and surface threats. A self-contained package, Phalanx automatically carries out functions usually performed by multiple systems -- including search, detection, threat evaluation, tracking, engagement, and kill assessment.

Phalanx Block 1B, the latest upgrade, with its surface mode configuration, augments the proven anti-air warfare capability by adding a forward looking infrared sensor and optimized gun barrels to the Block 1A configuration. It allows Phalanx to be used against littoral warfare threats such as helicopters and high-speed surface threats. Block 1B also adds new control stations with situational awareness that allows operators to visually track and identify targets before engagement.

Phalanx is installed on practically all U.S. combatant ships and on those of 22 allied nations.


The SeaRAM Anti-Ship Missile Defense System provides the highest level of ship self-defense with extended keep-out range capability.

The SeaRAM Anti-Ship Missile Defense System is a spiral development of key attributes of the Phalanx Close-In Weapon System and the Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) Guided Weapon System. SeaRAM is designed to extend the inner layer battlespace and enable the ship to effectively engage multiple high-performance, supersonic and subsonic threats.

An 11-missile RAM launcher assembly replaces Phalanx's 20mm gun. SeaRAM combines RAM's superior accuracy, extended range and high maneuverability with the Phalanx Block 1B's high resolution search-and-track sensor systems and reliable quick-response capability.

SeaRAM is an affordable capability upgrade ---- the above-deck system fits the exact footprint of the Phalanx, uses the same power, and requires minimal shipboard modification.

Bring the fucking speed boats and go to hallad snackbad mother fuckers. Not a chance! Not to mention the large number of guided missile destroyers backing the fleet. Hey these fuckers think they thought all this shit up but America's been doing it since the great General George Washington backed the red coats into a fucking crossfire with the french.

.19 Navy SEAL on ambush, Vietnam .21 Maddog in Hell Week. During the final night of Hell Week students are assembled in the classroom and told to write their thoughts down on paper. The lights are dimmed and mellow mood music is played as students try to stay awake and accomplish the task. I wish I had a copy of what I wrote as I'm sure it would be entertaining all these years later. .26 Don Shipley left and dive buddy in Alaska. We're smiling now but 15 minutes later we're attacked by a monster Seal in the water. .52 Maddog jumping skies. Note the hole between Jim's legs. His ruck wasn't tight enough and with the air rushing through the hole and the skies, Jim fought hard the whole jump trying to stop flipping over and over. Lucky boy... .57 Hotel Platoon. Don Shipley in center. Mack from Future Weapons taking the picture. 1.06-1.11 Patch commemorates the guys lost during the Lone Survivor Rescue. 1.17 Known as the "Sardinian Death Drop" these guys landed on rocks during a night drop. 1.26 Don Shipley receiving the Navy Medal after a rescue mission off Liberia. 1.31 Dry Suit diving in Alaska. Don Shipley on right. 1.51 Don Shipley. This photo was taken after extraction from the toughest Operation I ever did in SEAL Team. 12 days in the Arctic. Painful... 1.54 Don Shipley on right and Sardinian Death Drop Team Mate on left. 2.20 Maddog on left receives "Special Treatment during Hell Week. 3.35 Don Shipley Demo Course. 3.38 Young Maddog. 3.48 Note guys hiding in rocks below. 4.10 Good friend Steve Scott. Steve grew up in Nome, Alaska. The licences plates on his truck read "Ooglook." which translated meant "Fat Seal" in Intuit. These are photos I've collected during my 24-years as a Navy SEAL. Pictures from SEALs doing various training and deployments with SEAL Team overseas. BUD/S Training, SEAL Qualification Training, and SEAL Team is the order for guys aspiring to become Navy SEALs. 70-80% of BUD/S Trainee's will not survive SEAL Training with the toughest part being Hell Week, a grueling 5 and a half days with trainees continually on the move with little or no sleep. Log PT, surf torture, boat drills and the mud flats it gets much better in SEAL Team as guys attend Jump School for static line and free fall parachuting, breaching school or sniper school to name a few and worth every push up they do in BUD/S Training, "The Toughest Military Training in the World." http://www.extremesealexperience.com/
