neutral  Fabricio Castillo: Javier, acuérdate que casi todos los buques portan misiles. En este caso, fue una tendencia equivocada ya que demostraron no ser infalibles (ver Tipo 22) y no tener utilidad para bombardeos de costa, etc. Ya no se los diseña así.

  -> Chile tiene uno ahora, sublote 2, se le va a instalar un cañón, curiosamente ahora se esta volviendo a confiar en sistemas de defensa de punto basados en misiles (RAM, Umkhonto, MICA VL) abandonando a los Phallanx, queda sólo el cañón de proa, para NGS
