How peculiar. Nice drawing, though!

Please trade out the ancient SLQ-32 for the updated rendering, though :)

Echoing everybody else, I think this is a great drawing, and I prefer an incomplete or under-detailed underwater representation rather than the old waterline-only drawings (does anybody even do those anymore?).

SPS-48 is heavy and expensive, and I can't really envision fitting it to a ship with nothing better than Sea Sparrow. I suspect the latter could also be adapted to WM20 guidance, so replacing the director would not be necessary. edit: at least some WM20-series definitely could guide Sea Sparrow. Tha...

I think this concept would greatly benefit from a top view study. That doesn't mean you need to actually draw the top view in full Shipbucket style, but I suspect it would reveal that the elements as currently drawn wouldn't fit within a reasonable beam. For a personal or AU design, it's important t...

Submarines are unusually tricky, but it seems well-drawn and plausible by Shipbucket standards. I do think the sail is probably larger than necessary. But, an Akula's is huge, too.

Immediate application of power can cause a propeller-driven aircraft to lurch left (cavitation has nothing to do with this), but this was not a severe enough problem to prevent the IJN from operating several carriers with port-side islands.

Seems like a solid representation of an ugly little critter. I believe there is a helo hangar, though.

Sorry if this was already discussed, but putting a DP gun director atop a spindly lattice mast would not work for a number of reasons. The most intractable is that ships shake, rattle, flex, and roll, and if your director and your gun aren't speaking the same language about their coordinate system (...

BB1987's entry is obviously incredible.
