Counter-Measure Wash Down
At sea aboard Precommissioning Unit (PCU) Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) May 7, 2003 -- The Navy's newest Nimitz-class aircraft carrier tests its counter-measure wash down systems (CMWDS) during scheduled builder sea trials off the coast of Virginia. CMWDS includes a series of sprinklers in vital areas throughout the ship to help contain the spread of fire or chemical, biological, radiological (CBR) attacks.

All I have to say is that fist picture looks amazing it looks as if there is a misty water cloud on the deck nice picture. By the way doesn't water only intensify fuel or grease fires?

I was told by a sailor once on one of Austraia's frigates that washdowns are primarily used to remove radioactive fallout following a nuclear explosion.
I know there are some real experts on this board, and I aint one, lol, so please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
