Broadly speaking: nontraditional hullform challenge.

I've personally been mulling over a modern SWATH FFG, but I'd be equally interested to see regular catamarans, trimarans, surface effect ships, and whatever else.

It would be hard to do this justice without at least a top view and possibly a bow or stern view. Not sure how folks would feel about encouraging or even requiring one.

VERY VERY IMPORTANT EDIT: not before, like, February please :) I just bought a house and I have a lot to do.

I know I've suggested something similar to this in the past, but I think it'd be fun as a side challenge/mini challenge running concurrent to a main challenge:


An FD Scale Challenge whose requirements are based on a real world military competition/tender, where participants must create a vehicle to meet specific requirements of a real nation/nations. Examples of this could include a competitor to the Fiat G.91, Bréguet 1001 Taon and Dassault Étendard VI for the NATO Basic Military Requirement 1 document. Entries would be able to be tendered by a real world firm or a fictional firm from a real world country, or perhaps even a fictional country from a universe in which these requirements still exist. A new grading scale could be introduced in which the aircraft's suitability in regards to requirements of the document takes precedence. There are many other possible variations on this theme, and I'd be happy to answer questions should they arise.
