|since the blue water navy has taken a backseat in light of the new ages, the current weapons that are carried are a little over kill, missiles and air defense. of course we need to keep these on board and never underestimate current threat levels. but the only weapons that are being used to protect themselves from small crafts are very weak. they have the 5 inch a few 50 cals and 7.62 and a few carry 25mm. there is no medium caliber on board. so my question is what are they adding on to ships to give them more fire power. how many crew served weapons are they caring now???
