This was mine. I had two 5"54 but the one on the fantail reliably killed the #3 Gas Turbine Generator. Par for NAVSEA. My missile fire control system routinely locked onto the same GTG. I also had some real killers. I really liked High Explosive Controlled Variable Time ammo. They reliably detonated at 75 feet over the target.

We've been sending destroyers to sea for years and we keep missing opportunities to use those rounds. I don't think the bad guys know what they're missing. They have to cope with drones and Hellfire. I can live with that.
