iirc the F-15G proposal had the SEAD electronics in a pair of wingtip pods not in a fairing under the nose.

Considering that all BMT can realistically bring to the table is the Venator design it looks like it's gonna be Venator Vs Cutlass/leander.

Yeah, I understand that. The DDG 85 to DDG 106 don't even have the part of the superstructure that should house the forward CIWS. But, out of nowhere, from the DDG106 up, they again, added the superstructure part, but without the CIWS. So is the Phalanx CIWS so, let's say, cost ineffective that add...

One thing tho, while I'm here, Do you happen to know why is the new Burkes shipped without the front CIWS? Even tho the "slot" is there? I read somewhere that its cost-saving measure, but a 20 million Phalanx on 1.8 billion warship, seems like a quite a drop in the ocean. cost and weight for a brie...

they welded a strengthening beam along the hull at main deck level and called it a day. QED. "That" simple fix raised issues and showed a design flaw. but it didn't require a major rework or "reframing" there was a much much easier fix was it a 100% solution? no, but was it a 99% solution, yes

Well on the Spruances i imagine the VLS refit required slicing out sections of some of the transverse and longitudinal frames.

but i dunno how that qualifies as "reframing" any more then it does removing a section of the ship's fabric which was now simultaneously redundant and "in the way".

Or that new British destroyer that made an Atlantic speed run to show up the Americans and prove that British shipwrights had the right stuff? Wrinkled hull plates. Back to the builders to be reframed. By new do you mean the Type 42 Batch IIIs? Because the problems with the actual new British destr...

so you're using the example of the structural issues of lengthening lightly built and already in many cases structurally weak cargo ships to infer the design issues with the lengthening of ships which are by design very structurally strong? there is also the subject of lengthening during design and ...

Modern ships don't really have a keel in the conventional sense, and you can quite literally cut them in half and splice in a section with relatively little difficulty. Warships are certainly harder then cruise ships and oil tankers but in practical terms this just means that the number of places yo...

A lengthened Arleigh Burke already exists in the form of the KDX-III destroyers.

they're about 10 meters longer then a Flight IIA
