    2 Phalanx CIWS... 2 SeaRams would probably be a better option.

        She looks nice, But she isn't that pretty compared to a County or Amazon class ship.

                The way our navy is going, none. Instead they'll be given a leaky bathtub and a rubber duck .

                  Personally I prefer not worrying so much about sudden nuclear annihiliation, but your mileage may vary... ;-)

                    The Phalanx are already bought and paid for and probably intended primarily for anti-surface use anyway.

                      Not a bad looking boat. As with alot of the modern ships, it look under-armed. I said the same thing about the Spurance DDG's, the Ticonderoga CG's and the Arliegh Burke DDG's. Obviously those were/are all well armed, but it's always nice to see some hardware on the decks
                      Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years...

                        I think rather than being underarmed their armament will be mission specific. The will have a high degree of modularity and their armament will be tailored according to the msission.
