Phalanx Guns

The Phalanx guns were removed from the New Jersey when the ship was decommissioned for the final time. All four mounts have been replaced by weapons donated by the manufacturer (The forward starboard gun has a date of 1994; a decade after the originals were installed.)

This is the left side of the forward starboard gun viewed from the fire control deck.
