Nice pics. Perhaps you should resize them though to something like 800 x 600 for quicker loading and optimal viewability. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The American ship...CG-60 is the USS Normandy. It is the sister to mine...USS Monterey CG-61.

Those aren't Sparrow missiles. That is the Vertical launching system for Tomahawk and SM-2 missiles.

Nice pics.
