How to: CIWS

#33
Anyone returning to this thread who has a half decent idea of current naval military hardware; the specs on OTOBreda/Melara's guns are a brilliant start point for newbies. For those who arent aware; the later versions (and the retrofitted versions) of the x2 40mm, the 76/62 and 127mm vulcano are all capable CIWSs on their own, not quite the goalkeeper/phalanx in last ditch, but pretty fucking neat even without the new guided ammunition they use.

I found a great balance for starter designs at 76mm timed flak on two mantlets (or entirely seperate guns) each with det times ~0.05 seconds before and after expected intercept point. play with timing with how you will depending on your expected opponent's munitions.

another option I found to be suprisingly phenominal for cost/complexity is to use the new 40mm simple weapons, the best being the double and quad due to their more continuous rate of fire. one or two of them can handle the odd missile the early DWG throw at you, and for the cost/labor time its absolutely brilliant. I'm yet to test some of the others so; bare with me.
