Well I do hope these http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGrJnxdDbO8 were removed from Invincible before the Turkish scrapyard got hold of them. Apparently they are quite effective against anti - ship missiles. Do the Corvettes have similar systems?

excellent we could do with a few of these. how many do you have so we can work out whether we need to but anymore.

no wonder the roc is bankrupt.

They are anti-ship missiles. We will flatten Luricina with a few T-80s. :mrgreen:

The most effective weapon to flatten Lourougina is with the Zuzana 155mm!

One wallop from this monster and half the village turns to rubble. :lol:

This is seriously badass artillery…

Most Turkish Vessels already have a Goalkeeper.

They are effective but if the attack is coordinated with multiple missiles, then some will get through and hit. :)

Well you don’t normally send something to scrap with live ammo contained in it! :)

Anyway, all modern navies are moving away from the large, bulky, and expensive (WWII based) monsters loaded with cannons and into small, fast, high tech and easily maneuverable boats that are loaded with state of the art electronic systems for surveillance, attack, and defense.

These corvettes fall into that category which you can read about here…

Nobody has built a 'Battleship' for Years, HMS Vanguard was the last. Cruisers are the largest type most modern Navy use now, excluding Aircraft Carriers. Nobody needs to fire 2ton shells when you can post a cruise missile through a front door. Most have small deck mounted guns for close sea combat on smaller vessels not big enough for a 'Cruise'
Close combat anti aircraft/missile are mainly 'automatic gattling gun' type, which throw out a 'storm of lead' see "Phalanx System" As said through out this post the newest type of ships are smaller but pack a bigger punch because they do not have to take the punishment 'Battleships' did. Older Navy's are being made obsolete by this new type of Ships.

That would be especially true for the CNG.

A small fleet of very fast Corvettes/Patrol Boats which also pack a punch would be ideal. The Gowind ticks all the boxes.

The Phalanx System is a Close In Weapon System (CIWS) just like the Dutch "Goalkeeper". It fires about 4000 x 30mm rounds per minute at an inbound warhead with radar guided precision. It's effective range is only 2nms.

Now that you mention it, I seem to recall those from when I went to school a couple of years ago!
