Point Defense Phalanx CIWS question


Recommended Posts

Testing old scenarios to constate DB editor is going fine, remembers me an old question.

In relation to the attached screenshot and the lines "DEBUG Downes FF1070 PointDefense Got'm all" , Downes FF1070 effectively has expended all its ammo firing at the incoming missiles, some have been shot down (or not!) others not and have sunk poor Downes.

The questions are:

- In the simulation, the Phalanx is shooting down the incoming missiles, or it's only applied its Point Defense Value, a value unknown to me?

- The Point Defense Value has any relation with the mount field "Auto", what reads "1" in this concrete case?

- If not, the mount field "Auto" is or not implemented on the simulation, and what is its meaning?

- The expression "PointDefense Got'm all" what real meaning has, as many missiles have penetrated the Point Defense?

- The expression DEBUG, what is related in this case?

Perhaps too many question, but many thanks!!!
