Oh, excellent. The PDF is from 2004, so some change over the intervening decade is not surprising.

Oh man, I love the crazy Delta IV derivatives. For those unaware, the 7-CBC superheavy could rival Saturn V in LEO throw weight. I'm not familiar with this specific generation of next-gen Delta, but I wouldn't be surprised if it could surpass S-V.

That's a good question, but it's really hard to answer. So much of what we know about the pre-Aegis missile ships came about after Typhon's cancellation -- Belknap didn't commission until a year later, and of course the whole next generation of USN missile destroyers/cruisers was cancelled. That mon...

I assume so. A phased array serving TVM (which is how Patriot has always worked) ought to scale just fine. The internet says the real-life system can handle nine targets, which sounds to me like a system operator limitation (it's got to fit on a truck! let's do a 3x3 screen layout) more than a techn...

Well, SPG-59 is nice, or whatever. Even though I'm sure it would be an absolute madhouse in service. https://i.postimg.cc/fyRnbLWf/CG-15-TYBEACH-2018-11-14-4104.png full-size But if it did make it into service, then C-band track-via-missile must have gone into USN service. After SPG-59 crapped the b...

These are very nicely drawn. Enough shading to show shape, but not overwrought.

I'm not sure this is the most technically sensible offering (it might be, it might not), but damn does it look good.

Depends on what you mean by "plausible". Could you build it? Yes. Would you want to? I kind of doubt it. There's ultimately very little reason to put very large caliber gun mounts on a fast ship which must defend itself against air, surface, and subsurface attack. To the extent they can be justified...
