    Had a look around one of them too. The Goalkeeper Phalanx guns are massive in real life. They basically track any unfriendly fire coming towards the carrier by radar, and pick it off ! Quality

    Fully laden you could also fit in excess of 50% of the entire British Air Force on board ! How sad is that
