Love your work. I had considerable difficulty getting the RN's early destroyers to look any good at all.

Personally I like the first version. Whats the point of escorting a carrier with it? Isnt its job best achieved elsewhere? I would be more inclined to keep the two turrets forward and shrink the aft flat deck.

Rifled guns are more stable at long range than smooth bore, however, for the same amount of propellant etc, smooth bores have a higher muzzle velocity. Trajectory or curve, are dependent on velocity, drag, weight, aerodynamics, sectional density........ Rifled guns can only fire APFSDS and HEAT ammu...

They are from a new AU. The intention is to escort to far flung trade partners, all weapons shipments are to be escorted. No smaller units are expected to engaged in escorting. I used launchers due to the length of the ER AAM's (and to avoid boring VL flats). All AAMs's are active seeker, hence no i...

I nicked sebu's masts instead of hull mounted aegis types and rotating arrays. https://dl.dropboxuserconten...
