I'll also point out that the gun mountings are likely to be the same type as the below image with a shape similar to that of the automatic Mk 42.

Hawker Siddeley HS.1179 Sparrowhawk GR.Mk.1 Is it a combination of one of the Hawk preliminary designs with the HS.1182-AJS design for AST.396? A very realistic aircraft. Only comment is that the engine should be named by a river in United Kingdom. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Lune

Amongst its contents are images of the 5.1 inch gun designed in the 1930s, and tested on the leader Kempenfelt.

Interestingly in 1933 the Royal Navy briefly thought about building heavily-armed sloops as a way of defending specifically to defend convoys against contre-torpilleurs. They could build unlimited numbers of sloops under treaty limits, whilst Britain was limited to 150,000 tons of destroyers, hence ...

I'm unable to find any sketch of any 5"/54 Mark 41 twin mount (as intended for the Mitschers) in my copy. The only sketch I can find of the 5"/54 is on pg130 (of the Mark 39 single mount).

There is a small mistake. The window to the upper left of the roundel is the intake, and small circular window to its immediate right is the exhaust for a pair of gas turbines that feeds the active boundary layer control system and the air-cushion landing system. Apologies for the overly large image...

I did compare your design to the images of the model of the North American WS-300A design on the Secret Projects Forum. It looked very similar, aside from the TSR-2 style cockpit.
