All very attractive, as I would expect from the bevy of talented artists behind the works. A few things:
Are the LEUT_EAST-based drawings derived from the latest forms? I feel like DDG-15 in particular has a few things that had since been changed.
I think I'd try to unify some of the more minor radars, surface search and close-range air search and whatnot. There are a lot of different variants (no pun intended -- I think that might be Variant on DDG-15) that would make the supply chain hellish.
No SHF (domed) SATCOM on the Alaskas seems very unlikely in the 2000s.
Oh hell if I know. These were all drawn back in 2013 and most haven't been touched other than recoloring the missile boats. I need to go through and update them all. I was wondering about the electronic fits and how to standardize since I figured a navy wouldn't operate so many different ones.
I can never really decide if I want to keep the CBs in the AU. I think it's very, very unlikely they'd last past 1980, but hell - it's an AU and who cares. They're a fun thought experiment.
