Okay, honest question. The jump from Flight II to Flight IIA added about 800 tons to the ship. But from what I can understand they didn't increase the beam at all, the only length. Does the 1 meter, 1/154 of the ship, actually make such a difference? I mean, if it helps, I can make the hull longer by one meter, and nobody will probably even notice. That extra hangar space would sure come useful if I'm to fit those Ospreys there
Come to think of it, It would probably also help with those VLS too
I'm actually kinda sure, that I'm on some sort of government watchlist, after all the information I googled about Burke class destroyers
. The way I see criticism is really simple. Its either good criticism and I should learn from it, because its, well, good. Or its bad, and I can just ignore it because it's, well, bad. So I'm always glad when people criticise my work. Anybody can "like/favorite" something, but when someone criticizes it, it actually shows they put some thought to it.
The thing is, I just can't say basically anything. For example, putting more VLS tubes, obviously, A, Reduces the internal space B, Makes the ship heavier - which in turn makes the ship slower etc. But when someone asks me, "How am I able to fit them there". I cant answer. I cant google the inside layout of Arleigh Burke-class destroyer (believe me, I tried), so the only answer I can give is generic "The space was reorganized", "Due to advance in technology, the other systems got smaller" or "The automation lowered the requirement for the crew size, so rearranging internal bunks freed up some space" you know. Technically, probably not wrong, I mean, we do talk about ships that are 6-26 years in the future, there's bound to be some miniaturization, some automation etc... But it's not a great answer. I mean, the "enclosed bay" actually does increase the space somewhat, so I can account for at least some of the "missing space".
Okay, It makes the ship slower, I still can't say anything about this either. The wiki states that the speed of Arleigh Burke-class destroyer is "in excess of 30 kn". Great, so the speed is somewhere between ∞ and 30 kn. So I can't even say "The ship is slower" right? I don't know the speed, to begin with.
So yeah, there just not much I can say without going deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole
