Description
An Arleigh Burke-based replacement for the Ticonderoga-class cruiser, based on the high-end proposals from the 90s Destroyer Variant study (inspired by the DDX program, Atago-class, and Type 055/Renhai-class). Modifications from the existing Flight IIA hangar-equipped hull include: •reinforced hull plug amidships (additional volume, hydrodynamics) •flush-deck helipad+hangar, enclosed RIBs+anchor chains (low RCS) •14' AN/SPY-6 (+X-band), 2×Advanced Enclosed Mast/Sensor (AEMS) •128 (4×32) deeper Mark 57 peripheral VLS cells (abreast of funnels) •155 mm Advanced Gun System instead of bow 5" gun for BVR NGS Uses workshop components (take credit in comments); remixed from 3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/33f4d31a559bc07fc1ccec171a275967 WIP, will be updated over time due to design creep-started as a big Burke #AEGIS #Arleigh_Burke #Ticonderoga #CGX #cruiser #DDG #destroyer #maritime #military #navy #ship #warship
