Collateral damage. There is no need for such heavy air support, when the confrontation is on friendly territory, Police only use helicopters for searching for suspects and pursuing stolen cars.

Most of the action unfolds on the ground, sometimes in heavily populated urban regions. Missile launchers and machine guns/miniguns could cause major damage to these areas and the people living in them.

except if your in america where gun violence is extremely common.

Police Helicopter's are mostly nowadays used in keeping or tracing criminals faster bairways.

For a story what US Navy ships would carry nuclear missiles?

Mainly aircraft carriers, submarines and some frigates. Personally, I think that all classes of warships can carry nuclear weapon launchers in terms of placement. If a frigate can carry a nuclear missile launcher, a destroyer can do it as well. Of course, when a different class of warship is chosen to carry nuclear weapons, military enginners will study the best location to install the machine. In other words, there isn't a warship specially designed to carry such weapon launcher. Aircraft carriers and submarines are systematically equipped with those nuclear missile launchers due to their characteristics, specially super aircraft carriers.

Was the F-15 eagle in Libya shot down?

No. The F-15 eagle was not shot down by any AA Missile launchers(anti-aircraft missile launchers). It crashed in Libya but no pilots were killed. The pilots of the F-15 eagle ejected from the aircraft by jumping out of the plane with the parachute behind them. Somehow they managed to land safely on the ground. Gadafi - "we shot down one of the planes!" Allied Forces - "The plane had engine problems!" Aircraft's are some of the most advanced technology and they often don't crash but when it comes to the military testing and pushing the technology to the brink they can run into problems. So if you know aircraft's you can find very in-demand jobs!


How many missile turret does the USS Enterprise have?

USS Enterprise (CVN-65), like most carriers, doesn't have many onboard defensive weapons, including missiles, that you'd normally expect on a major surface combat vessel. Carriers rely on escort vessels (Destroyers, Cruisers, Submarines, etc.) as well as their own air wings to defend her from air, submarine, ship, and missile attacks.Enterprise currently has 2 Sea Sparrow launchers for low-level strike aircraft defense, and 2 Rolling Air Frame (RAM) missile launchers for inbound anti-ship cruise missile defense. Like most U.S. Navy surface combatants, she also carries the Phalanx CIWS (Close-In Weapons System) 20mm radar-controlled gatling gun for anti-ship/cruise missile defense.
