No doubt what type of warship this is! The modern warships all seem to be PC (no weapons in sight!)

I agree Nick, the older ships looked much more imposing...I recall the 'Spruance' class receiving similar criticisms, until it was made public how much weaponry was stashed below decks...That said, it's a shame the 8" automatic gun was never adopted by the USN. How ARE we supposed to carry out gunboat diplomacy, anyway..?
