This video is from 1990. The USS Horne CG 30 had the Mk 10 Mod 7 Terrier SAM system forward (58 rounds plus two dummies, TSAMS, in three, 20-round magazines. The EP2 main control station shown at the beginning of the video must be a result of an upgrade in the ’80s since it is very different from the panel I trained on in C School at Great Lakes in 1975, and operated in the after missle house, MK 10 Mod 6 from 1976 to 1979. (The USS Bainbridge CGN 25’s forward battery was a MK 10 Mod 5. Each house had 38 missiles plus two TSAMs in the magazines.)

These are the only video’s I’ve seen of the inside of the missile house. I wish that Joe P. Westberg had shot more.

This was Horne’s ending. I don’t know which is worse, being punched full of holes (but not sunk) as a target ship or being scrapped as was the Billy B.
