Frosty the Snowman goes, "Brrrt! Brrrt! Brrrt!"

Well, it could be a Minion: "Brrt-nana!" "Brrrt!" ""Brrrt!"

capt fast, RAM used the same base as CIWS but the RAM missiles are IR seeking, it doesn't have it's own radar. It gets initial targeting data from the Mk23 TAS search radar that is part of IPDSMS NATO Sea Sparrow.
