oops, forgot to mention telescoping hanger. vls is clear allround by about 6 feet, hanger is in retracted position. i designed the ship around the 48 cell mk41/telscop hanger combo, note tracks for hanger on flight deck. cable/strut hand "rails" folded into deck around deck edges, pulled up by the ends and locked when personnel on flightdeck. admit Toms and sm2's are a stretch on a vessel this size, but smaller nations would be willing to pay for big boy firepower on a ship (more likely ships [$!]) they could afford. despite its size, she's meant as a GP warship. IF its doable that is.
Steel is cheep, and with small ships, the ability to have a hanger and a landing pad is good. If you want to keep your Tomahawks, you really do need to make the hull longer. Plus as I noted, your Harpoon launchers look big enough to mount Tomahawks which would let you go down to Tactical length VLS (where you can mount VLA, SM-2, ESSM, and if you do the R&D, maybe VLH(arpoon)).
wasn't aware rams could track targets being vert launched. they have stinger IR seekers with directional passive radar recievers to queue them on to their target's active emissions. the ship informs them of the band and freq before launch.
IIRC RAM Mk. 2 and higher can.
Here, take a gander at my Mk-41 sheet:
