I'm not sure what the Sea Guard is there for. Judging from the line-up above the VLS you've already got plenty of missiles in that capability range.

It's mainly an interim solution until a new join Gun/Missile CIWS becomes avaliable...

Also, year my mistake about the missiles, will update within 5 mins :P

There are 112 cells (IIRC in the original design). Goalkeeper wont fit over the hangar I'm afraid, unless you don't actually plan on hangaring your helicopter. You could put anything up to a 76mm either side of the hangar where you currently don't have anything or you could take the hangar layout from the group 3 which is a wider affair and flush with the hull ( you could mount a single goalkeeper aft then and still ship helos). Also there are couple of areas that used to have small calibre things (MGs and the like) that you've removed the weapons from but kept the mounting points for :D (ditto rigging or lack of and the ESM aerials). My final note is that there are some colour mismatches it appears on there not sure if they actually are but some areas look off.

Overall I like your take on the design, it just needs a few tweaks.

Mark,
What I actually did was take your export hull as it made my job a lot easier to mount what I wanted. I wanted comments and I got them so am going to get to work changing the design a bit to fit everything correctly :)

Nick

EDIT: Can someone please explain the locations of the colour mismatches???

Below are the aircraft of the Malpusian Naval Aerial Combat Corps:

[ img ]

1 - The F/A-21A Fury - The Fury is the Malpusian Equivalent of the EuroFighter Typhoon. Armed with the latest in advanced weapons it is a multi-role aircraft but since the introduction of the F/A-26 Huldra (see below) has mainly been used in the Air-to-Ground role although it is a better dog fighter than the F/A-26 (Like F-16/F-15 differences). The aircraft replaced the F/A-18 in MNACC units.

2 - The F/A-26B Huldra - The Huldra is like a modern F-14D. Armed with Meteor-D LRAAM's it replaced the F-14MN in the MNACC. The aircraft's primary role is protection of the Carrier Battle Group but is also very capable in the precision attack role and SEAD taskings. Due to the aircrafts success in the SEAD role a dedicated variant, the EF-26A is being developed to furfil this role. Licence production began in 2007.

3 - The F/A-52B is an ASTOVL aircraft that operates from the decks of the Malpusian LPH's. Due to the impending retirement of the F-21B Sea Harriers a replacement was sort. Originally Malpus was to buy F-35B but this fell through so licence production of the McMillan Pr.1310 Firebrand. The airframe was matted to the radar of the F/A-21 and produced a brilliant ASTOVL aircraft.

[ img ]

1 - MH-60M FightHawk - Designed to turn the Blackhawk into a truely multirole helicopter the MMOD ordered a large batch for all 3 services for CSAR, Shipbourne Roles and Battlefield Support. Equipped with a 20mm cannon and a ESSS it is capable of being configured for the different services. In the Army role it is used like a Hind, dropping in troops and then providing air support

2 - CH-71 Kestrel - A variant of the EH101 Merlin the CH-71 is equipped for tactical medium lift missions. Capable to drop a large number of troops into the area of operations they are fully marinised for use at sea alongside the navy.

3 - CH-53 Stallion - Built to the standard USMC specifications but with Malpusian Counter Measures suite. Also able to carry pallatised ECM and ECCM suite

4 - AH-1M - Basically a AH-1Z licence produced and armed with Malpusian standard weapons, awaiting Brimstone intergration and will be intergrated with Spear 3

Upon the Swindon Class CG reaching sea trials a new variant was ordered as the CG(S)-X Program. It retained the overall shape of the Swindon Class but has a plug forward for another half VLS and has the whole aft above water section redesigned. It's current role consists of supporting amphibious landings that the Malpusian Army are conducting. For this role it has more VLS Cells to support two types of Land Attack missile and also a new Flight Deck/Hanger. The enlarged flight deck is stressed up to CH-53 Size and the hanger is dual role. It can be used as a standard hanger with containerized C3 in the forward end OR can support 2 CH-71 or 3 S/MH-60 Helos.

Weapons:
MW Guardian Missiles - ABM and SAM Variants
MW MRCAMM
MW VL-SSLAM

Not likely, can't remember specifics but the original drawing had the earlier version of my VLS which was broadly similar to Mk41 except for cell diameters and the lengths that they came in...
