The US Navy seized an illegal shipment of arms that was so big it covered much of the deck of a missile cruiser.
The Navy said on Sunday that it found the shipment hidden in a ship in the Arabian Sea as part of an operation that started on Thursday.
The U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet shared a video of the guided-missile cruiser USS Monterey, which showed the weapons covering much of the deck:

To give a sense of scale, the Monterey is some 55 feet wide according to an online Pentagon database.
Images show as many as 12 weapons comfortably spaced barrel-to-barrel.
The Fifth Fleet said in a statement that the haul included "dozens of advanced Russian-made anti-tank guided missiles, thousands of Chinese Type 56 assault rifles, and hundreds of PKM machine guns, sniper rifles and rocket-propelled grenades launchers. Other weapon components included advanced optical sights."
The Navy said that the weapons were bound for Yemen, but did not say where they came from.
