It's got to be something nice and easily bashable, so I'd figure Iowackiness (once paul? finishes his) is the next likely candidate.

Somehow people aren't getting this. Raven's work split here.

Post your own stinking work in your own stinking thread, please.

I'm well aware of SPY-1's design and requirements, thanks. If you're intending to blow marginal utility right out of the water, and play in the land of the implausible, I'd certainly rather have a very high SPY-1K (for horizon search) and a larger-antenna SPY-1A/B for better discrimination on higher...

Well, I'm sure it's bearing the load within the constructed cell, but that would be all. It's an interesting observation, though; I wasn't aware of this modification. Seems likely to be for small-caliber boghammer-bashing weapons, but that's wholly a guess on my part.

I wouldn't be extremely surprised if RAM eventually went to a 3x3 arrangement (5" missiles, compared to 21" Tomahawk eg), but I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't. When you have empty cells sitting around, there's no reason to push the envelope (which costs time, money and probably early-design-cycl...

Only four. I kind of agree, except that I bet RAM is a lot cheaper than ESSM. I understand that there is a big pile of USN Mk 41 cells that sit empty in the fleet. I'd also feel a little differently about it if they were wasting space in a Mk 41 SDL instead of Strike-length (which, as I understand, ...

Pad could be bigger, hangar definitely needs to be for so many aircraft as that. There's some virtue to the idea of two separate SPY-1 installations (on something so already-stupidly-big as this, at least), but the secondary arrays (the forward-facing aft pair and the aft-facing forward pair) probab...

I see no reason that a SPY-1F/Mk-41 FREMM would not be possible.

I favor the US system for a variety of reasons, but I am about out the door right now and don't immediately have time to explain.

I would certainly expect the depth charges aft to be landed for lightweight ASW torpedos. The latter were initially considered (at least in the USN) to be a depth charge replacement, with negligible range but a very large effective damage radius.

The battleship surely does not have much to fear from modern (Western) AShMs from a hull-integrity point of view, but that's not the point in the modern world. Electronics are effectively un-armor-able, and will be torn up nicely by the warhead on a modern AShM - that's what they're for, after all. ...
