    I took a full tour of this gorgeous warship, my father worked on classified systems, including the Phalanx System...

    Sweet video tour of the USS New Jersey. Thanks!

    The rate of fire for the Plalanx is otherworldly and the target acquisition is scary especially on a static surface.

    I spent a week on the New Jersey testing Tomahawks in the 80's for Mcdonnell Douglas. They fired the 9 inch guns. Awesome memories.

    I worked at Douglas, HB, CA back in the mid 80's.
