This only the third real design I've attempted, and easily the hardest. There are no accurate drawings I could find, so I had to use inaccurate ones from older design concepts combined with a number of real life images to fill in the gaps. So, whilst this is certainly an improvement on the ancient drawing already done, its still not 100%, that would require analysis skills way beyond mine (I'm a few of you would be able to do that) or some actual decent quality drawings. Anyway, here she is.

Not knowing too much about this individual class I can't add the the dimension debate but the quality is 100%

Nice drawing


Side note: I think there was a similar design proposed to the Norwegian frigate program back then, if I am not remembering wrong.

Looks pretty good. BZ!

From personal experience on the (exercise) receiving end, I can attest that the Héraklès radar spins so fast around that it looks like its tripping on really potent LSD when its operational, and the warship is a very capable ASW platform.

Gorgeous work and certainly a great improvement from the old drawing. I believe the French Navy operates the NH90 from these vessels if you were planning to include the helicopter in the future.

Nice drawing, but I don't quite follow the multitude of shades on the hull.
