----total naval makeover

unlike on land, I didnt hold back the naval changes because it is totally broken. I am quite proud of it, naval is actually enjoyable now.

1. Ashm has 1.5hp instead of 1hp, now it takes 2 hit from rapid firing gun to kill it, though missile from likes of AEGIS can finish it in 1 hit.

2. Reduced the potency of CIWS overall.

3. Reduced the armor of ships and made deck gun deadlier, now ships will sink faster if under fire.

4. Ships have longer anti-air as a whole, you cant just fly planes in head on and never get hit, you need to position it to reduce AA exposure.

5. However planes are overall deadlier due to increased veterancy and avail.

6. New blufor big ship, Arleigh Burke class destroyer!

7. Lastly, balance, historical load out, and naming effort from land applies to naval as well.
