FFG-500 -- USS Fletcher -- Frigate Design for the US Navy by dwightlooi
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=5104
Didn't know if it would be rude just to fill up his thread with my half baked take on the same ship (and I hope he thinks Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery )


My take on a frigate for the USN (AU built instead of the LCS's).
Gone with a slower and fat ship (for more space for my helicopters 2+2 drones).
May not fit strike length MK41 or full number of cells (and have added RGM 84's to it as well ;) well they might fit ?).
Not sure on what to fit radar/etc wise gone with SPY-1F (please tell me why that will not work as I have no idea about radars, I wanted a small cheap one for a FFGX).
Fitted with 'pop' up Sea Ram and 30mm (How to show that ?)
Should I go to 1 screw to save cost ?
How to make the 'stealth' middle bit look nice ? :( :oops:
Edited with slightly better version.

Why would a ship ever be fitted for but not with VLS cells? Why not just leave the cell empty?

that's simple. because even empty VLS cells cost money.

Cheaper still ( well for a stealth frigate !)
- only 16 cells (but I think you can quad pack small AA missiles so not to bad ?).
- big hangar / flex deck (with a few options shown)
[ img ]

q for the experts ?
- is 57mm ok as main gun ? or will NGFS lobby win ? (I'm thinking VLS + (helicopter or drone) missiles) will cover any limited need ?)
- should I go even cheaper with single screw ?
- do I need CIWS (phalanx or RAM) ? or is 30mm + 57mm + VLS missiles ok ?
- what do I need radar wise ? does it matter much where the rest of the arrays go (ie do they need to be spread out etc ?)
- will it work at all ? :o :roll:

Thanks JSB

+1 :!:

Much prefer WW1-WW2 ships but thought I should try and learn about other eras by building a few.

Please note that this was a joke about modern warships, not a dig at you're drawing!

That's how I understood it 8-) and I will go back to Tiger (when I have searched a bit more on AA guns) I promise.

A few additions,
