I know english isnt your first language so I'm not going to slam you on some of the things you said, but you should read a little closer before posting some stuff.
like what? you can do it by pm, but I'd really like to know what I say wrong according to you.
We're either just arguing semantics or just arguing for the sake of arguing.
we are not arguing, we are criticizing your design so it gets better.
So to clear up some things, the ship wasnt going to have a nuclear reactor it was going to have an LWNP driving permanent magnet synchronous motors. You can read more about LWNP here
great to be linked to my own thread. note that every single LWNP ship on the bucket is created by me, so you are refering me to know more about my own knowledge?
also, why go electrical?
Yes its a nuclear reactor, but its not a S8G or something like that.
no it is not. but it is an nuclear reactor, which gives you near unlimited operational range and way less refueling ops for an smaller usefull displacement. so, what, apart the scale, makes the LWNP that much different from the S8G or other models?
The gun was about 37" to short. Im fixing it. I just recently got a decent drawing of a mod 4 gun. And while SB scale is good for what it does, its not as accurate as 3D. 2 ft is the smallest unit in SB scale right? I can model down to 1/1000th the width a human hair.
37'' as in less then 1 meter? and then it is the same size as the Mk 45?
also, I was not talking about how accurate it was. I said it was good for measuring systems against each other, not that it was good for perfect accuracy.
I'm gonan try moving the SLQ-32 antenas outward a bit. The people in the EW module made fun of me for having a mod 3 instead of a mod 2 so I changed that also.
I think 16 ASMs is the right number for how this class of ship would be used. My ship just took part in a sinkex against the EX-Corinado and I think the decision is a good one.
ok then, but I still think this is wasted space. it is not like this ship will ever go alone against more then 2 other ships. if 4 missiles per ship can't damage it, 8 won't either.
About the bow thrusters, I think Visby
has them, and she is super stealthy right?
If Visby isnt in the ASW business someone should tell her, because she has a ton of ASW stuff onboard.
oceangoing ASW, with long range sonar and ASROC and helicopters is completely something else then coastal ASW, with mines, depth charges and similar stuff. the long range ASW weapon of the visby are torpedo tubes, are the short range weapons of about every frigate.
note that the noise is important for your maximum sonar speed. you need to be able to keep up with your battlegroup while your sonar still works, when you go less then 18 knots and the sound of an opening in the hull obscures the sonar, well, yeah... you'd be an sitting duck. and that is exactly what this bow thruster does.
The CONOPS for this vessel is diffrent from typical Navy doctrine, I'll go into that concept when I post some more pics. Blue water ASW isnt as big a concern as Brwon water for this class of ship. Probably only mentioning its escort duty was probably misleading. This ship is taking he place of LCS. Combat in the littorals is the primary mission.
then, in what, is this ship better than some littoral combat ships? they still need long range cover, and escaping from them as submarine, aircraft or surface simple: just get out of range.
I have some time tonite to do some more renders, so I'll post some diffrent angles later on.
Thanks for helping make my art better.
np, and can't wait
