    It gets tested all the time where I am at. At when I say tested, I mean actually used to hit the incoming. I have seen it go off several times over my head and right above me. Cool light show though.

    Cool light show indeed. I remember very distinctively seeing it take out mortars aimed at H6 housing at Balad all the time.

    Yeah - when I went to Balad a couple of weeks ago I heard it go off several times. I was thinking it sure would be nice to have one of those at Liberty.

    Fast forward two weeks: I get back to Liberty and there's this nice new Phalanx system sitting less than a kilometer from my CHU. :wiggle:
