Here is my latest design, the Indomitable-class (as much as I love America, the Brits really know how to name ships
) support cruiser:
At the moment, well, there's an issue with the radar fit: it's the full on getup you'd expect for an anti-air focused escort, but the ship doesn't have any meaningful AA armament beyond CIWS. In other words, very expensive but apparently not being put to use. This immediately raises a few questions:
What's the intended roll of the ship? What does 'Support Cruiser' actually mean?
Is it intended as to act as a flag ship within a task force with other air-defence capable ships (with weapons controlled by the 'flag ship' by datalink)? If so, having a point defence SAM system would still be useful.
Is it intended to be something like the German F125 Frigate, capable of long deployments covering 'low intensity' stations? If so, you'd probably want to cut the radar fit back a bit to keep the price in check... look at the British Type 23 or Type 26 for a suitable fit out.
