Firepower with a user submit from the Navy (22 HQ Photos)

"Our deployment started off working with a few other countries, doing
exercises and showing good relations, going to places like Germany and
Norway. Later on, we rescued the crew of a tanker after a pirate attack.
Other than that, we are floating around doing whatever we are told to
do." Thank you to Thomas and your team for sending these great photos in.

      Thanks for serving, Thomas, and for the great pictures! Chive on!

      Question for you about the turrets in #10. Are there actually people in there, or is that done by remote?

      • Rick

        no bad questions, if you ever have one just ask and I'll try and get you an answer. The Mark 45 (MK 45) is fed from below, the math on the target is done by a computer and then fired by an operator who gets the go from a gun captain

          Thanks, Rick! Thanks for running the board. Were you in at any point? Not that you need to be to appreciate the troops…just curious.

        Midgets. Three of them.

      • STG2

        the 5" gun has a Magazine located beneath it were personnel load the predetermined shells and powders into the actual gun system which then takes over and automatically chambers the rounds itself but the actual turret you see above decks contains no people just machinery
