A nice rendering of a profoundly weird concept. No actual naval architects were harmed in the writing of that article. I can't decide which I find funnier, the twin, triple, and quad turrets on the same hull, or the uptake-bulge idea.

Quite lovely drawings. I think they'd look even better with a more modern shade of window blue.

The only change I might make would be to color the funnel stays and other lines a darker green when they overlap the ship (retain the light gray when there's nothing but sky behind them).

The drawing is very attractively rendered! That said, it seems to suffer from a fatal flaw: a lack of freeboard. Thirteen feet relative to the floor of the hangar, and only six feet relative to the RHIB aft. The ship does not seem survivable in a heavy sea even in an undamaged condition. She might b...

Generally speaking, the drawings are delightful. From a more fundamental standpoint, it might be worth thinking about how a Russian/Soviet large liner might differ from its US/UK/French counterparts. From where and to where would it sail? What would the customer base look like, and what would they e...

It's a 3 faces radar, they should perhaps be around 50+deg, don't have the number in my head, how do US mount there 3 faces. It would not be hard to look up, but it's easier to do the math and recognize that you probably want even coverage across 360deg of azimuth, 360/3 is 120, and thus the radars...

I still don't have a good feeling for what the various fixed radar/radio apertures are for. Their fields of view give the impression that the superstructure was designed first, then it was "filled in" with apertures that seemed about right. One glaring example of this is the low, wide aperture on th...

These are excellent drawings. Although I can't say I love them... I'd forgotten just how austere the Type 42 was, especially in early batches.

A fairly remarkable example of the mantra of "steel is cheap, air is free".

Wow, this is an incredible drawing. I need to poke around and see if I have any deeper thoughts, but that's my initial reaction. Wow.

It feels like 2006 was yesterday! Yes, these drawings and designs are flawed and broken in various ways, but I enjoy discussions of where Shipbucket used to be.

It cracks me up that these use the (in my mind) "new" SLQ-32 :laughing:
