HMS York at Portsmouth 2001. At the time she was used to evaluate the Raytheon Sea RAM system, equipped on one side, with standard Phalanx on the other. Any more info on this would be appreciated! It used the Phalanx hardware (radar and mount). I think the trials ended in late 2001 and I have not seen any mention of the system since.

I only noticed yesterday that this is the system fitted to the US Littoral Combat Ship 'Independence'. Its the first I have seen it on a ship since I took this picture 9 years ago. If Goalkeeper has fallen out of favour with the RN and the Phalanx is being used elsewhere maybe we should be bolting a few of these on the T45's and all.
