Just some context, Russia loves taking a boat they no longer consider a front line asset, but still has life left in it, and use it as a testbed for future technologies. The 613RV...the large structure on the bow is pair of 65cm torpedo tubes (no reloads) used to develop the various large weapons th...

Just a thought...the Sigma has a hull sonar but no torpedo tubes. Wondering if this is an oversite or if ASW weapons delivery will be handled by aircraft. A great start to a nice regional navy.

A good looking little ship. FYI she has a small pilot house forward since the USCG is not ready to allow unmanned anythings to operate in navigation channels (I work on a large UUV and this has been a problem for us for several years now). Also while the class is planned to have a sonar system insta...

Just a historical note, the Moskva's were considered somewhat a failure. With the fwd half being all weapons, magazines, electronics, etc and the aft half being essentially a hollow hanger, they tended to ride bow down which made them very wet forward in even a moderate sea.

Just to add some history from Conways... The Monitors built in this period were snuck in while Congress was not authorizing ship construction. The USN took the names of 6 Monitors from the Civil War and declared they were going to "repair" these ships for current use and got the funding passed. The ...

Tarawa's do not have bow thrusters. In fact no USN warships do.

Thanks apologies for overstepping the intent of this section (proposed real world designs).
Still, it will be interesting to follow.

Helo facilities. Is that a telescoping hanger? The helo looks taller than the shortest telescoping section. The ship is large enough to accommodate a full helo hanger extending aft with the launcher roof mounted. Unless the intent is to land a helo for refuel/rearm, but not have an embarked aircraft...

Well, its a pretty interesting ship...plays very well into that size matters thing. Hoping not to commit an egregious sin, I did a quick and dirty slice and dice of your ship...essentially cutting out the center section with the 2 extra guns, the grafting the ends together. This may not be "Shipbuck...
