The ship has nice lines, dy!  It reminds me of some of the early supercarriers of the Cold War.  I don't always comment on these, but as a big fan of naval subjects, I love them.  Keep it up!

Cheers,

Logan

During their campaign of containment against the United New Order Nations, the Armies of Frontier Nations would discover that UNON's control of its own home universe is far from firm, with remnants of countries that UNON's founding states defeated in a past World War still carrying out struggle against the UNON forces- in fact, they've been slowly but surely rebuilding their forces, acquiring and even constructing weapons despite all UNON's attempts to eradicate them.  The presence of supercarriers within their naval forces is one proof of that fact, as is the A-7F and F-14C (multi-mission upgrade of F-14A powered by F401 turbofans) on their flight decks.

This shipbucket graph is originally just my idea of cleaning up HMCS Warrior, a what-if reconstructed USS Forrestal transferred to alt.-Canada upon initial decommissioning.  Then...... one thing leads to another until it gains a slightly-altered airwing to denote an unrelated story......

(Hopefully I'll be able to stop flip-flopping on what aircraft will go on its deck soon......)

Loving these ship designs, please keep them coming!!! 

Three things:

The CIWS on the after part of the island and your after Sea Sparrow Illuminator need to switch places.  Look like you're using SATAN, IE Goalkeeper with a different guidance package?  Either system needs below deck space for the massive mag and to support its weight.  You need to switch them.

Standard practice for any large ship with Sea Sparrow is TWO illuminators per launcher to make it effective since each one has to guide the missile the entire time.

Lastly, if the launcher, at any point, can aim itself at the deck, ships' structure, or personnel, then you need to add an anti-radiation shield around the illuminator or else you'll be frying the ship and her crew.

You said its a modded CV-59 so take a look at where they put the illuminators and the associated missiles and guns if you want to move some things around.  I'm always a proponent of the "four corners" defensive set up since it allows for maximum coverage around the ship.  Add one more CIWS on the stern, and possibly one on the Ilse to cover any blind spots and help with saturation attacks.  Grouping Sea Sparrow and a CIWS system on each corner and just a CIWS on the starboard bow (you don't want missiles there EVER in case an aircraft goes over the side; BOOM!) and stern, and you're golden.  Like I said, add one more on the Isle if need be.

Just my $0.02 man  8)

I have attempted to implement Cliffy B's suggestions on the three recent Shipbucket graphs, as well as replacing the AEW aircraft onboard the large UNON carrier; the results should be visible at the relevant past posts now  ;)  Please do check back and offer further comments and suggestions if there is any.

The CIWS used on the "Good Guys" supercarrier is Sea Dragon, which has the same basis as the Goalkeeper and SATAN but uses Sea GIRAFFE radar for search (in this case a fictional version with antenna enclosed in a dome).  A third and forth Sea Dragons are located off port bow and stern, and a third Sea Sparrow launcher at port stern, all invisible from the starboard side view.

Real-life carriers do have missile launchers at their starboard bow but not port bow (except for RAM launchers onboard US supercarriers), which I took to be because of their proximity to the path of the angled deck?

Yeah, I meant port bow sorry... :P 

Meant to add these to illustrate the "anti-radiation shield" I was talking about.

Right above the bridge windows and right below the 2 white comm domes

See the 2 ribbed upwards turned cones?  Those are the shields; one on the after end of the isle and the other on the radar mast.

Hai-Xing is one of the capital ships intended for collaborationist navies raised in countries defeated by what would become founders/permanent-members of the United New Order Nations, part of a gradual-relaxation of the unwritten policy exercised by core UNON members that client states, whose governments exist more often than not just to rubber-stamp UNON occupation of overseas territories, shall never be given qualitative parity.  In the past, only patrol craft and old destroyers were sold or otherwise given to collaborationist navies; even if agreements were made on the transfers of several warships of light cruiser class or above, most ended up being negated, and for all intents and purposes those warships are to serve core UNON navies until they fall apart.

Over time, however, home-grown political tensions in core UNON members and subsequent operations to suppress domestic dissidents have spreaded their military strength thin, prompting them one by one to consider giving their client states a more substantial role in the defence of their interest overseas.  An impressive-looking array of collaborationist armies would also serve as useful propaganda tools.  To that end, at first some capital ships that had venerable combat services were sold off, and they were later joined by newly-constructed vessels that were deliberately made significantly better than what collaborationist navies had but less capable overall than warships serving core UNON navies.

Like other ships built for this purpose, Hai-Xing itself appeared impressive on paper, offering a fixed-wing naval aviation capability and a suite of heavy naval artillery to a navy that lacks both in a single package, but at the same time the design is a compromise- and not a very refined one.  Due to the two twin 12"/50 gun turrets and eight twin 140mm gun casemates, the flight deck and hangar space are too small for a truly multi-role airwing; that space ends up being shared by a small air defence detachment (this became especially apparent when the air defence detachment enters supersonic age- the F-8 Crusader is acquired because one, the collaborationist government's request for the F-4 Phantom is blocked by core UNON nations, and two, the ship is unable to support the F-4 or its swing-wing evolution anyway) and a helicopter detachment.  The ship's main and secondary guns are effective against both naval (light cruisers and below) and shore-based targets, but it is vulnerable against retaliations from 6-inch guns and heavier as well.  It's axial-deck aviation facility means that the experience of being catapulted over forward turrets would also prove somewhat turbulent to fighter pilots serving aboard.  All in all, it combines the capability of a large light cruiser with that of an escort carrier, but considering the collaborationist navy flagship that it replaced is a 860-ton gunboat, it represented an improvement nonetheless.

For all its shortcomings, however, the ship does have adequate speed and maneuverability to actually keep up with UNON fleet operations, and its crew- always hand-picked out of a pool of personnel well-trained by a meticulously-run local naval academy- are known for their discipline, professionalism, and loyalty to the collaborationist government.  Throughout its career its captains, crew, and naval aviators have played their roles intelligently and professionally given the limitations of their ships, a fact that was respected even by Resistance captains who fled the UNON and collaborationist forces from the world's Far East region and therefore resented what it stands for as a collaborationist fleet flagship.

The ship has been very active in providing convoy escort and naval gunfire support to UNON and collaborationist forces, and while Hai-Xing was never converted into a full carrier because core UNON members are reluctant to allow client states to possess aviation vessels with greater capacity than that of an escort carrier, continuous upgrade has been made to keep it as relevant as possible, and the ship's crew took very good care of it in the meantime.  Along the way the ship gained a true blind-fire capability for its main and secondary guns, some anti-ship missiles, a new island, more space for provisions used by onboard aircraft complement due to the removal of the forward twin 140mm guns, modern CIWS, and finally two octaple VL SAM-16 active-radar-guided point-defence missile launchers located between the island and the smokestack at starboard side.  The helicopters were replaced with a type that has an AEW variant (although this eats into the number of ASW/SAR heloes embarked), and the F-8 fighter jet detachment ditched their overworked mounts in favour of zero-timed airframes taken from storage and then given cockpit and weapon upgrades.  Some old 25mm autocannons were retained in single mounts for use against close-in surface targets such as small boats and floating mines.

Now, decades after its entry into active service and having been joined in the fleet by a fast escort carrier, Hai-Xing is about to be involved in the ensuing chaos following UNON's first encounter with explorers from parallel universe......

==============================================================================================

This was originally intended as a "shoot" idea to be named "Shi-Lang"...... but then I spent too much time on it and decided that it's more acceptable to see the darn thing as just something crazy than as a shoot.  Nonetheless, comments and suggestions are welcomed.

Another Resistance forces supercarrier.  Instead of the F-14C and/or F/A-18, some Resistance supercarriers embark navalized versions of Su-30 and militarized EAP, both clandestinely developed for the Resistance forces by disgruntled industrial interests that have been forced to forfeit technologies and other results of their works to core UNON member nations; many are also genuinely working toward the liberation of their homelands from UNON control while others are in because the Resistance, while not as wealthy as the UNON, is at least willing to negotiate a proper compensation.  The Su-30 supplmented the more expensive F-14C although it ended up gaining its own following, and the EAP, known as the Sea Fury after naval and operational optimisations, is to make up for the low number of F/A-18s that the Resistance was able to get "diverted" from shipments ordered by UNON members.



Some of the universes previously explored by the Armies of Frontier Nations have had interacted on such good accords that those universes are willing to pledge support when the Frontier Navy, naval arm of the Armies of Frontier Nations, need to commit fleet assets but wouldn't be able to get them where they need to be quickly enough- recently during the commencement of hostility with the United New Order Nations this offer is taken up once more.  This particular aviation cruiser is deployed from one such universe to provide escort for Frontier Navy replenishment vessels and carries a mixed airwing of Mountain Eagle "emergency fighters", Brave Hawk tactical fighters, and on a recent evaluation basis Vanguard fighter-bombers, supported by Turbo Tracker AEW, Turbo Trader aerial tankers, and AW-149 ASW helicopters.

The ship itself also just received upgrade involving a navalized Sky Bow III missile system, including a modified (for shipboard use and providing guidance to Sea Dart anti-aircraft missile) version of phased array radar, for use in anti-theater-ballistic-missile role.  A vertical-launch system is designed and installed to launch Sky Bow, Sea Dart, Sky Sword II, and Naval Tactical Missile System in both its land-attack and anti-ship varieties.  Other weapons this cruiser carries include one 120mm naval artillery gun, four twin 40mm Fast-Forty Type B close-in defense cannons, three Sea Antelope close-in missile launchers, and four quadruple Long Tassel II ballistically-delivered torpedo launchers.

=======================================================================

Aircraft cruiser with a skijump and my first attempt to do a rough top-view layout.  I am trying to get on it an aviation facility as close to that of the Vikramaditya as possible while staying within the size range of the never-built Kreml and my Strike Cruiser Mk.IV derivative of it, but the result ended up being a tad longer......

Re: dy031101's Mental Notes- Fun With SCADS
« Reply #158 on: February 24, 2013, 04:14:27 PM »


Another ship deployed by universes friendly to the Armies of Frontier Nations to assist- this support ship helped refuelling Frontier Navy contingents as the latter are out looking for trouble.  When needed, this ship can carry out both sealift and underway replenishment functions.  There are also medical (a small one that includes an operating theater and intensive care facilities) as well as command facilities onboard.

The cargo area can be configured to expand existing capabilities (housing for more troops/cadets or field hospital module, for examples) or take a reduced set of Shipborne Containerized Air Defense System (a hangar for six Sea Harriers or others, and a takeoff/landing area with skijump; the helicopter servicing section is not included due to the military ship's already-existing facility), basically adding the functionality of an escort carrier when the ship is not required to transport cargo containers.  This is more often than not for training purposes, however, as operationally the SCADS is meant to be installed on any sufficiently-sized civilian container ship to protect merchant convoys from anti-ship bombers used to blockade shipping lanes.  In this case the entire SCADS set also includes a helicopter hangar module.

==============================================================

The cargo cranes problem remains unresolved.  :-\  Maybe we'd keep a few crane trucks onboard, too......

There are two instances where the Armies of Frontier Nations actually encountered enthusiastic users of the F7U although their Cutlasses have major differences from the Cutlass in the history of the FN forces's homeworld.  One of them is a two-seater powered by two J54 a.k.a. Avon turbojets, and the other, as illustrated here, is a single-seater powered by three J46 engines (essentially compensating for the low thrust of each engine by having one more; see attachment below for engine arrangement).  Although developed in two different parallel universes and therefore not really related to one another in the strictest sense, they are also both equipped with a double-telescoping nose landing gear strut, which appears far less problematic than the long fixed-length one recognisable to those history-savvy amongst the Frontier Navy aviators, to allow for high angle of attack takeoffs.  They in their respective current iterations are otherwise broadly identical to the F7U-3.

Sea Control Ship types.  More or less ideas I've been harbouring since playing Naval Ops: Warship Commander on PS2 (but can't actually build them due to game limitations), and since Shipbucket offers readily available templates, I might as well mess around with them.

The Harriers are basically Shar FA.2 except each has a nose similar to the one used by the Harrier II+ that contains AN/APG-65 radar and a camera for identifying far away targets.  They are meant to be armed with clipped-fin Aspide missiles although 30mm Aden cannons remain an option.

Also, seeing that the official status of old icon for Mk13 launcher has been discontinued, I saw fit to use it and pass it off as being capable of loading ASROC......

Beautiful work.  I'm not sure how much in the way of external changes would be required to fit an AN/APG-65, as modified for the AV-8B+, in place of a Blue Vixen.  OTOH, a version of the AV-8B+ was proposed to the FAA to replace the Sea Harrier FA.2 (not sure if it would be a Harrier FG.11 or a Sea Harrier FA.3).

Further note: It would be rather interesting to see a mid-life update to both with the mechanically-scanned antenna replace by an AESA antenna.  I'm not sure it would show externally, but I'll wager the overall performance would improve.

"The Lost Fleet" is the self-proclaimed name of a mysterious fleet of ships that appear to also possess the ability to travel between parallel universes although their world of origin is currently unknown.  Contacts between the Armies of Frontier Nations and the Lost Fleet are as of now few-and-far in between and tend to be rather brief if non-confrontational, but the fact that they actively commence hostility against the raiding fleet of League of Kings, an organization of warlords in exile and one of FN forces' mortal enemies, as well as those who aid and abet them have made the FN forces take notice.  They are also believed to be on a level that approaches the FN forces in terms of technologies, in some areas very closely.

Other ships identified as part of the Lost Fleet (just in case people want to refresh their memory): (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)



This air defense destroyer class is very much like an enlarged La Fayette class frigate, but data gleaned during the few windows of ELINT operational opportunities thus far revealed a sensor specification similar to that of a Horizon class frigate.



ASW destroyer.  In addition to the Ikara launcher, Sylver A-43 VLS, Harpoon AShM, and one twin 128mm/L61 gun turret, this class is also one of the first to receive a CIWS development of the twin 5.5cm/L77 autocannon.

The "League of Kings" is a band of warlords in exile after losing a campaign to reshape world order on their homeworld, the same one where the original founding members of the Armies of Frontier Nations came from.  FN military command, despite having moved on past petty Homeworld political/ideological squabbles and willing to pay little attention to either unless their bases and supply lines are directly threatened, correctly suspected that the League of Kings might start engaging in subversive and/or militant activities across parallel universes , thus adding complications to the FN forces' on-going missions.  They would indeed go on to become responsible for arming and advising some of the most murderous militarist powers FN forces end up crossing paths (and swords) with.



This carrier class is built on high-speed merchant hulls and features the best of what the organization can buy or, in case of things they can manufacture, improve with reverse-engineered technology.  The carrier is intended to incorporate the operational characteristic of a cruiser as well out of the consideration that not all factions and patrons could muster a multi-role airwing for it.  A modified version of the easily-available MiG-21 created by incorporating the RD-33 turbofan and incomplete stolen specifications of the JL-9's carrier trainer variant into a MiG-21bis production line (further modifications include a periscope on top of wind shield frame for improved visibility during landing, reduced-sweep outer wing leading edges, wingtip air-to-air missile rails, and blown flaps) became the primary fighter aircraft for most of these carriers.  It would appear, however, that the League of Kings and their patron forces still rely on modified land-based aircraft or flying boats for fleet airborne early warning.

Built-in armaments of this carrier class include 32 Noor anti-ship missiles, Shahab Thaqeb anti-aircraft missiles in 24 proprietary octaple rotary VLS silos, and AK-630M in both single (2) and twin (4) mountings.

(Thanks to elmayerle for suggestion on navalizing the MiG-21)

Well, my original intention (which still stands) is to allow for a scenario where I can put all my contraptions on the same battlefield for some triple-threat warfare: Armies of Frontier Nations and their friends on one end, League of Kings and their patron militarist powers on another, and on the third side...... I need to work on that the most.  ;D

More to come.

This battleship, left incomplete following the end of the World War that led to the official declaraton of the United New Order Nations, ended up falling into the Resistance's hands before the UNON could claim it as a war prize.  It took the Resistance four decades to decide to complete it to a hybrid design incorporating the functionality of a helicopter assault carrier- the originally-specified aft 16-inch turret was left out in favour of a hangar and flight deck for 30 helicopters (20 in the hanger and 10 on deck) and 12 mechanized landing craft, as well as accommodations for 1800 troops.  The eventual weapons configuration includes two triple 16-inch guns, two single rapid-firing 5-inch cannons, two six-round Mistral missile launchers (as a close-in weapon system due to difficulty in mounting Sea Dragon CIWS anywhere with a good firing arc), two eight-round Sea Sparrow launchers, plus various man-portable small arms.

Nonetheless, its time to shine will have to wait until the arrival of visitors from other parallel universes, when the knowledge that there is a military power beyond their own universe throws the UNON into chaos.

With a mix of AH-63 Knightcobra, OH-1 Cobra Scout (with mast mounted sensors), and Sea King (troop transport with a secondary anti-ship role using Exocet and Sea Eagle missiles) for an airwing, this ship would go on to feature prominently during Operation: Metal Black, Resistance counter-offensive aimed to capitalize on the chaos and weaken UNON overseas occupation forces in the world's Far East region......
