Do phalanx turrets not over heat? That seems to be what people make it out to be. Also would the apaches not be shot at? It sounds like a video game the way things are perfect in the US military.

The Phalanx is the last line of defense for those speedboats that do manage to get close to the big US ships but the majority of those boats will be taken out by planes and helicopters long before they get close enough to strike.

A fully loaded F-18 Super Hornet could probably take out a few dozen of those boats, now multiply that by 90 planes a carrier has and you get the idea !

Also Apaches flying at their maximum altitude would probably be out of range of the speedboats and would shred them to pieces with hellfire missile !
