Challenge submission: CGN-36 'TyBeach', date in service ~1968ish https://i.imgur.com/iSgm5po.png This concept is intended as a follow-on to CGN-9, making as few alterations as are necessary to get Typhon and SPG-59 to sea in a serviceable unit. Long Beach is an attractive starting point because of t...

It's possible she can be repaired and put back into service... apply sufficient dollars (or kroner) to the problem and the problem can be solved.

But the engineer in me says it would be cheaper to build a new ship.

Still hoping to poke the thread into action ;) I think the concept is frozen, and there's just fill-in to do (in actual real life, I bet UNREP stations and life rings and such are arranged after the major radars!). Many alterations from the original concept resulted from concerns about fore-and-aft ...

Of course it must be pointed out that Normal Bel Geddes was not a naval engineer. It was a time filler for his staff, the Italian connection coming from theatrical designer Ernest de Weerth, on behalf of Mussolini. Another odd non-naval connection. Geddes hoped an American shipbuilder would take up...

This is not my submission for the challenge, but I am posting it in hopes that it might motivate drawings a little more adventurous than "I put RIM-55 in my Mk 13" :) https://i.postimg.cc/br9FcsJH/DLGN-TYPHON-1964-7.png This drawing is visiting from, if I trust my file system, late 2010. EDIT: the i...

The man-pointed BPDMS illuminator would not be safe with SPG-59 operating. In any case, BPDMS was so wildly limited I have no idea why it would be shipped. Mk 42 might have been more effective.

This is very, very attractive. Do the latest renderings show the L-band phased array at the same scale as the S-band? This is new to me.

If anything, I think you could get away with fewer SPG-62 since you have AMDR-X and (presumably) SM-6. I'd retain (probably) one fore and aft to burn through jamming at extreme range, or something, but they don't seem like they should pose a saturation problem.

"Just because it looks nice" shouldn't be sufficient reason to redo perfectly good drawings time and time again. On the other hand, "that's already been drawn, so you don't get to draw it later for yourself" is by far my least favorite idea I see regularly expressed here. If somebody really likes T...

Very fine drawings. I would point out that the Phalanx EO package is presumably mounted on the left-hand side of the radar dome on both installations, and so the back of the port-mount EO package should be visible aft of the starboard mount.
