Is that the 3rd Phalanx position under the Tarp, or is it the one further outboard and slightly aft? Is the 3rd mount about to make an early appearance?

Could it be the 30mm mount?

slightly out the loop on news with the carriers (real life issues keep me busy sadly) but was it revealed what caused the flooding that sent the QE back to Pompy early?

Burst seawater pipe. But no further news on damage, if the repairs have been carried out. Presumably all sorted now.
