Designing this partially in 3D. Block 1B version.
Oh holy ****... Between that beast and the gun they built the Warthog around, I'm not sure which is more badass...
What the Phalanx has over the aircraft mounted weapon is its ability to track and lock on to an incoming bogey, right? Like an Exocet...The GAU-8 Avenger 30mm in the A-10 is definitely more badass. This one is only 20mm but still is cool looking. There is a Close-In Weapon System called the Goalkeeper that used the GAU-8.
Looks pretty good but it looks like it might be missing the ammo feed chute/belt.
And speaking of the C-Ram, check this out:
TazMan2000 i keep meaning to offer some pics to you. Until recently I have been a 3D modeler working on training apps for the Navy. Last year I spent a couple days on a ship in Hawaii and got some pics of one of these guys with the intention of 3d modeling one for myself. PM me if intereste.
so I just looked on my phone and only took 2 pics from roughly the same angle,sorry. Still welcome to’em though. I got more pics of the big front gun and exterior of the bridge. I was exhausted as I was only 6 weeks out from brain surgery and going from D.C. to Hawaii and back in 72 hours made for mushy memorie...
