The Tico also does not have a fuller hull as the Spruance? (it has exactly the same) I read that offhand remark and literally burst out laughing at my desk. As you know I lack the capacity to comprehensively and completely refute every last arcane claim made by one of the posters in this thread, bu...

Curious how neither Friedman's Destroyers nor Potter's Electronic Greyhounds make any mention of the Spruances needing "reframing" after being fit with VLS forward. Seems like something one or both of them might mention, as they devote pages upon pages to the subject of the DD-963s being designed sp...

I think a skeg aft would border on the necessary for structural soundness. Of course German heavy units had a habit of letting their stern fall off after sustaining damage in battle, so perhaps DG_Alpha is to be commended for drawing a historically reasonable personal design ;) I find myself wonderi...

Beautiful as always, and inspiring for my own efforts. Question: is it sensible to have dedicated bow thrusters on a ship that has a forward azimuth thruster, especially a combatant that cares about hull noise?

I think Squid, with its above-deck sideways reloading, would be a very poor choice for a bow mount on a small vessel.

I stand corrected! For what it's worth, the Persian Gulf and Red Sea are highly susceptible to ducting in S-band, which for a small ship with a limited processing capability might have been seen as undesirable for the air search set. That would explain the choice of a P-band air search radar for a S...

There have been a number of studies about shortened and lengthened Burkes. If the increase in capability is demanded, I'd just insert a parallel-sided additional compartment amidships and slide everything to fit.

Wasn't suggesting you do so, only that it would be cool :)

Do you know what practical/service difference (if any) resulted from the different arrangement of holes in the casing? Noise, speed of dive, anything like that? For submarines especially, it would almost be neat to have a little blown-up (double bucket scale? Probably not FD) close-up of the sail or...

Nice, sensible little vessels. SPS-40 on the corvette seems like massive overkill, though. For a small nation with minimal domestic defense interests, I'd look to some of the European offerings of the period. I don't have my Friedman readily at hand, but I'll suggest some other fits tonight.
