    you sir are stupid, stupid, stupid. When i was in the navy they did not allow women on combat ships which is stupid because these days all american navy ships are targets. Women can and do, do their jobs just as well as men on board ship. we had a femal mechanic on board, and she was smarter then any mehanic i knew later i found out she was a lesbian later on but i did not care More..

    What if 10 mortars attack in the same time mr anti-your-god?"
    what if you stfu, kiddy"
    The phalanx system is designed do track multiple targets at a time. The 6 barrleled minigun fires 20mm exploding rounds at a rete of up to 100/sec. Such a barrage o More..

  • I dont know if it was my admitadly crap PC setup but I could make out much of this apart from the soldiers voice, lots of night sky and a few cheap looking fireworks??
    By the way 'DARTHGOME'....exactly what DOES R2D2 look like with a hard on. Where exactly is his dick supposed to be? Enlighten me if you would. I have no idea about what items the US forces use so would like to understand what I just missed. Thanks mate.

  • doesnt seem like it worked this time, u can see no mortar rounds going of in the air like in the other video, and that bigger explosion on 0:25 sounds pretty much like an impact, not like an aerial explosion..

    1000 rounds of highly expensive phalanx round wasted for 1 mortar round that wasnt even destroyed, thats not very effective.. i guess its true, this weapon is just some kind of morality booster

  • mortars??

    phalanx is used on missiles is it not.. I guess it could be adapated..and i guess mortars would be slower incoming than missiles since missiles would have engine power behind them and mortars woudl have gravity only

    What is your issue,hes not name calling anyone here he's referring to terrorists. And while we are on the subject of name calling, i suppose your a Democrat appeaser who rather be on his knees begging.Your ignorant generalization speaks glaringly about your mental state.

  • Jeeze you guys sure like to guess. The Phalanx is the same unit used on US Navy ships and called the SeaWizz. Basically it is powered by high pressure air (Over 400 psi) and shoots depleted uranium bullets at sub sonic speeds. The rate of fire and radar and other target acquiring systems make it especially good for defending against mortar attacks.
