The drawing is provided in Sumrall's Sumner-Gearing-Class Destroyers , a book which I can heartily recommend (although it is not quite so insightful as Friedman's works, its scope is narrower and more precise). A quibble: I think that by the time SG waveguide issues had been sorted out, SC would be ...

For what it's worth, I think the original air search radar fit (SPS-49 and that's it) is much more likely. SPS-48 would be an expensive waste on a ship that has no real AAW fit and is not itself an aircraft carrier.

The usual excellence I've come to expect. JOHNSTON was one of the "square bridge" FLETCHER class destroyers, which incorporated a revised/simplified open bridge based on British war experience. While it's certainly true that British experience went into the bridge revisions, this seems to sort of in...

I agree that removal of some 5" twins makes sense, even if they were replaced with nothing. Crewing these beasts wasn't cheap. Best might be to remove the center six mounts and relocate the Harpoon canisters to the newly-empty space. Then you could also remove the beam Mk 37, which would further red...

Carriers require the patience of a saint. These are a pleasure to look upon and examine, and are worthwhile even as teaching tools.

I really thought I used a big enough font where I wrote "working hack -- not real!" to indicate that it was a sketch of mine, not the proposed refit.

I guess I'll make it 72pt next time...

For what it's worth, I'd trade the masthead ESM for TACAN, keep the ABLs, keep the VHF, and do something Tico-y with the Phalanx :) It's always seemed odd ot me that there is no SPS-49 or equivalent on the design. I guess it just didn't fit the very constrained nuclear hull, but I'd have liked to pu...

Very nicely drawn, and I am excited to see this series progress. A few thoughts: The arrangement of SLQ-32 and the Phalanx seems very unlikely. The SLQ-32 (on a somewhat deeper and more substantial structure) is clear on the artist's concept . Locating Phalanx within its "view" would likely cause ma...

These are only guesses on my part, but I would propose a combination of the following: Long-term fallout from the late-2000s recession has western navies more interested in lower-cost systems Experience with waterjets on LCS and some flavors of the MEKO has not been super positive Experience with wh...
