Under Siege

Character mistake: When Rybeck gives Miss July basic instructions about the use of an Heckler & Koch MP 5, he calls it an assault rifle. This weapon is classified as a submachine gun (a machine gun firing a sub-caliber round). Someone with his training would know the difference.

Plot hole: An American battleship with an active supply of nuclear warheads on its missiles would in no way allow a helicopter full of strangers to land and deploy without those men being screened for any weapons by the security guards on the ship (even if Krill already knows).

Question: If the ship's artillery is only equipped with 5-inch starburst rounds (as stated more than once), how do they use the much larger guns to sink the submarine?

Answer: The smaller guns were only equipped with the Starburst rounds. The 16 Inch Cannons were still supplied with live ammo. None of the characters left to fight had experience with the 16 inch guns except for the Gunners Mate, therefore none of them thought to use one of the 16 inch guns.
