Wanted to redo my vessel... ended up with almost redesigning it!
- removed Hangar, I Have a flex deck, why not use it as a Hangar as well!
- Hangar superstructure made smaller and only double up as flex deck/drone/UAV hangar
- Single mast become, 2 mast in a new design. better survivability
- Changes to the weapon layout, Reduced.
- VLS is a Caledonia variant of Mk41 and port and starboard VLS are something between Mk41 and Mk57
- Main gun is gone, but there is base for a lightweight 5"
- moved around on self defense weapons
- Different layout on funnels, not 100% happy with the solutions... suggestions, sitting on the fence on going with either 4 turbines in 20000+hp range + 4 large, 4 small diesel and a backup diesel one for: forward; center; aft (emergency lights/pumps)
Note: top radar is basically a radar that are primarily used as an illuminator.
Note: 3 panels main radar, 4 panels secondary radar (what band and role they should have (same with the one above) it's not my field to say)
Note: Not sure if I need more panels for various electronics
T: Light 10,000 tons; Nominal 12,000 tons Heavy 15,000 tons
D: 7.46m; 10.21m
P: 4 Gas (+-26000hp each), 4 L-Diesel (+-4000hp each); 4 S-Diesel (+-1500hp each) + battery bank. electric driveline +-30 min power mode at +-125,000hp (Note! some of the power are hotel power)
(Note! the electric driveline isn't rated for +-125,000hp)
S: 26+ knots (combined), 12+- knots (Battery)
R: 6000 Nmi@16knots (Gas), 7500 Nmi@14knots (combined drive), 1000 Nmi@8knots (Battery)
C: 200 crew; 150 Passenger + additional when using flex deck
- Combined flex and Hangar deck with a ramp, that can be lowered all the way to the water, giving amphibious vehicle ability to drive onboard (below deck)
- Hangar for UAV on deck
- 56mm is fully automated trough the ships combat system, work similar to an CIWS, but larger, more complex and aren't a plug and play system like Phalanx, it have to be fully integrated into the combat system.
- Carrying a small and cheap missile, that is somewhat-slow and are an precision missile that deliver a small warhead to target. it can receive new target information on the way, in a swarm attack, fired together with a smart missile like for example NSM, the smart missile will automatically command the missile, due to a unique program.
