Thanks ace, I will work on the design and get back to you on that.
And now for something completely different.
[ img ]

MQ-57 Manta Multi-Role Combat UCAV
Specifications (MQ-57B):
Crew: None (Optional Pilot in Control Console)
Maximum Speed: Mach 1.46
Engines: 1x F119 Turbofan Engine with 3D Thrust Vectoring
Maximum Range: 1500+ miles
Combat Radius: 900 miles
Service Ceiling: 65,000ft
Maximum G Loading: +21/-20
Armament: 1x External 20mm A50 Rotary Cannon with 450 rounds
2x External Weapons Pylons that can carry either 2x AIM-9X Sidewinder AAM's or 2x AGM-114M Hellfire ATGM's

Description:
First designed in 2019, this highly maneuverable drone fighter was first designed in response to a request from the RoUK Air Force. The specification specifically required that it be unmanned, as to not waste fighter pilots, who were in short supply. With a population of only 80 million people and only so many rolls of the genetic dice, the specific abilities that make people natural fighter pilots were difficult to come by in the RoUK. After much consideration, the RoUK decided to become the first military to use a UCAV in an air combat role. After a competition lasting a year, the KAI Manta was selected. With a 360 degree camera system and millimeter wave radar system, the Manta is able to turn and burn with the best fighter pilots, all without requiring human input. The design was named MQ-57A and put into general production.

The Manta is commonly used in local interception/air defense and close escort roles. It is able to fly autonomously and can be programmed to engage any aircraft that enters a preprogrammed range around the aircraft that doesn't have a friendly IFF. With a light armament of only two AAM's and a Cannon, it is specially designed for what fighter pilots refer to as a knife fight. Thanks to its high strength structure and lack of a pilot, it can perform maneuvers that would cause a regular pilot to black out instantly. It can be directly controlled by a pilot in a cockpit like command center, but this is am uncommon practice. The B model introduced a limited close support capability with the addition of the ability to carry and fire 2 Hellfire AGMs. The B model is often used for Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD) missions.

In response to aces suggestions, I think I'm going to ditch the pods and go for a conventional layout. would moving the GK up above the railings help, because that's the only place where it will fit that I can see. Maybe I can remove one VLS and take the K-VLS, cut it in half, and put one half on either side of the radar array? Also, didn't know about the Sagittarius, I got the design from this:

I was thinking, move the funnel way back, do what i did with the K-VLS to the other VLS cell, and move the ASM launcher to a position behind the 5 inch.

I would distribute the phased array faces to both masts. I'll make you an image of what I mean in the morning.

You mean like this?

Your design is most definitely getting there. As well as re-distributing the radar faces between the fore and aft masts would it not make sense to also raise the masts a deck or two as well? I'd also suggest some form of tunnel thruster or retractable thruster mounted aft of the sonar and (from my point of view at least) raise the area with the 25mm and decoys up a deck.

I'm all for redistributing the radar array, but why bother moving the decoy launchers and 25 mils up a level? I've been trying to cut down the superstructure. Also, bow thrusters, good idea, I'll add them. In the set up I've got now, Ive got the actual radar array in the forward structure, while I've got the satcom link and IFF and other crap in the rear tower. The only reason I went with this approach was to redistribute the weight so it wouldn't be top heavy.
