The only critique I have of what is a beautiful rendering, is weren't those 6" guns, basically a flop? I got the impression that they didn't work well at all, and this is why those cruisers had a short service life.

Bronies are like the Forsworn. Everyone agrees that they are a problem but nobody wants to expend the energy rooting them out.

Nice and plausible idea the TLAM conversion of these cruisers. Well done TimothyC!

Or a Sea King helicpoter could be used, but the SH-2 also could work.

Didn't the Iowa class battleships operate SH-60s in the 1990s? I'm not disagreeing with you, just don't know for sure ;)
If by operate with you mean could accommodate on its flight deck, sure. And given the SH-60 was well into the USN inventory by then I am sure it made an appearance there on occasion. However, as a primarily ASW bird at that time the question is was it the most likely helo to touch down on a hangerless non-ASW surface platform? Its completely accurate to have an SH-60 there, I am just think its not the best representative example of the era and it also sticks out on the retro aesthetic of the ship.

I think the drawing is amazing as is, its just a suggestion.
