Correct



Don't know what a CIWS is, but it looks like it is shooting off of the fantail of a carrier or other ship.

Holy Shit... you could use the muzzle blast as a flame thrower to set other ships on fire.

Incredibly freakin LOUD, too.

The lounge in nuke berthing on the Enterprise is just below the CIWS mount on the fantail. The first time I heard it, I didn't even know what it was. The thing fire so fast, it's just one continous BRRRRRRRRRRRRRP. I guess it sounds kinda like canvas ripping, only a million times louder.

saw a cool video of a CIWS - missle coming at a ship at like 2000 mph and the thing shredded it- got it at the last sec. (i suppose thats the only time you could get it a t 2k+ mph...)
