wonder how effective the Phalanx would be against several missiles at once. Im not up to snuff on my naval knowledge and dont want to bring out a weakness or anything. Was wondering how many missiles they could track and surely there are more than one Phalanx turrets on a carrier. The airborne laser used for ballistic missiles...I wonder if these will be adapted for ship defense later on also? If the Phalanx has limited tracking even with an Aegis nearby, the number of missiles would multiply the kill ratio...right?
