Another "Proto-Kreml" Derivative
« on: February 21, 2017, 07:36:50 AM »
Life is wonderful.

I am being sarcastic with that previous sentence.

Anyhoo, now that my life has once again attained some sort of temporary stability, I need a morale booster.  Something, in addition to finishing that existing project, that can help me deal with the embarrassment of failing to meet deadlines twice for the previous GB.

Recall my fascination with what the Russians did with the carrier-cruiser idea (or what we thought the Russians did with it).

I'm gonna declare it once again my victim.

As for how I'm going to butcher it......

For one, after having encountered some newer Shipbucket illustrations of other Soviet aircraft-carrying cruisers, I think I can bring it a bit closer to the standard of those newer drawings.

Also, I found a fan-art of a F-14 Tomcat modified with the seating arrangement of the Sea Vixen over the internet as well.  And as the attachment suggests, the Sylver VLS family is actually shorter than the launcher for the S-300F; I don't know the exact dimensions of the VLS for the P-700 Granit, but considering the Granit missile is longer (10m v.s. 7~7.5m), I'd think it safer to assume that its VLS cell is deeper than the one used by the S-300F as well...... yup, I think Sylver A70 can go in their places......

Pretty sure I can do something with that information, too.  'can't think of a backstory justification for it yet, but what the hell.

To be continued......

Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

A Tomcat with a Seavixen cockpit arrangement, interesting whiff and the opposite of my aspiration, a Seavixen with a Tomcat cockpit arrangement?

Let's see......

Updated

The integrated mast houses a RAN-40L volume search radar within and a Sampson multi-function radar at the top.

I feel that the S1850M is too big to be put into that mast, and any future ABM capability of the PAAM lies with the multi-function radar anyway.

I realized that the main mast is really tall; some height could be shaved off, I suppose, if I only use the Sampson radar, but I am rather uncomfortable with using only one search radar set on a cruiser or carrier......

Not well-endowed with anti-submarine weapons (only a Bofors mortar at the bow), but then again, she does carry Rotodyne ASW......

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Thanks in advance.
