As for the CIWS. I am typing this from memory, so I am not 100% certain, but it should be about this: the USN considers ESSM as an anti missile weapon, similar to CIWS, or at least they did during the development phase. They did. The program was called Basic Point Defence Missile System and then Im...

It should be noted that the difference between a 5000 teu and a 20000 teu ship is huge difference in terms of dimension, mass and power requirements. Compare the 10.000 TEU Maersk Sovereign to the 20.000 TEU Madrid Maersk Maersk Sovereign Length: 331.98 m Beam: 42.80 m Draught: 14.5 m Power: 56,000 ...

Yeah, long narrow hulls can have some really nasty wave interactions. Especially if the bow and stern flares significantly.
Parametric rolling is no joke

Nice work, however that propeller is a bad representation of a much newer one

Clear sight lines. According to IMO regulations you have to be able to see the sea two ship lengths or 500 meters, whichever is less, ahead of you. That's why the container stacks gets shorter forward of the bridge on all the container ships on your illustrations. The relevant regulations can be fou...

By the time you're close enough that the bridge wings become relevant for collision avoidance you're too close to do any collision avoidance on the vast majority of ships. The gear simply doesn't react fast enough. Heck, if you're that close suction and bow wave effects will have more power than any...

"They're used [when docking] because you need a clear view of the ships side when doing that [almost anything]..." Docking and/or collision avoidance, for example. Just sayin... These two things have nothing in common. Heck, they're taught as separate classes, at different semesters as far removed ...

Nah, bridgewings are a feature on pretty much all ships. They're used when docking because you need a clear view of the ships side when doing that

I don't think a split layout is going to make sense on a ship of that size without the need for forward tankage. You're losing an entire cargo hold that way. I'm not sure how well hull shapes scales, you'll have to talk with Ace about that. Combined RORO and container carriers are a thing and there'...
