LOL, "final" is never final. I like the new SPS-10!
What do you mean, "doomcone"?
The 8"/55 caliber Mark 71, on the discord server it's nickname is The Doomcone.
I'd also like to see the flush-deck derivative, but I'm a little skeptical it would have made it through detailed design. Warships had become volume-critical by that era but naval architects hadn't totally internalized that knowledge. You've got bulky missiles and temperamental electronics which require specialists (i.e., not just draftees) to maintain them -- where are you going to put everything?
True, but that's what we have two whole forum sections for
