MNB subsumes CIWS, ECM and other defences into either Action Cards played to stop an attack or the Evade characteristic.
Sea Ram falls into that area as range is not long enough to count as Air Defence (~30 km).
There have been some discussion about adding a CIWS symbol to some ships that would work like AD except only for that ship.
How effective do you think Sea Ram is compared to other CIWS?
Sorry for the delay. I suspect Sea Ram will be very effective. Here's a video of a Sea Ram mount on a CIWS. Seems like rifle vs shotgun to some extent but USN seems very convinced. Can knock down targets farther out, as you pointed out.
Sea Ram vs 'regular' CIWS
Lots going on!
