Torpedoes are just scary thou. They can't be reliably detected and intercepted by modern countermeasures. And if you build a grill big enough and far enough away to stop a nuclear torpedo you might as well just add x300 to the width of your ship as listed.

Also, is it possible for a ship, (I made it up), called a Battle Lord class Breaker? It has two 24 inch gun turrets, a cell of 500 missiles, which was real, 200 AAA cannons, a submarine clamp, which also was real, and a landing pad for VTOL?

Keep in mind structural and other modifications would take place with these. Its physically possible, with certain precautions and other things. Just want to get your opinion.



2 24 inch guns r useless for anything beyond dick waving

500 missiles? Possible.

200 aa guns? Is this suddenly WW2? Nope.

Sub clamp? lol

Landpad for VTOL? Yeah, if you enjoy replacing your deck every so many years.

You're not going to have room on board the ship to squeeze all of those things on there, as has been said before.

I'm fairly certain that underwater slat armor is a terrible idea, fouls up everything from speed and maneuverability to docking to repairs. Plus, this ship is pretty much obsoleted by the concept of "planes", anyway...

THANK YOU! Finally! Someone sees the designers perspective in this!

And AAA cannons are used today. I forgot about the AA Missiles... oops...

orly? 24 inch guns that fire missiles are dickwaving? (M1 Abrams did, for a very long time, fire missiles out of its barrel instead of shells... so don't tell me its impossible).

Sub clamp: Holds a submarine in place with a means of getting inside both ships, and can let the submarine go. Used in WW2. So if you say its impossible now, think about it... 50 years ago...on THEIR submarines...

AND ANTI AIRCRAFT MISSILES AND CANNONS!

OMG no one listens....

oh hey buddy... it already has everything it needs...

So, you're claiming 100% effectiveness at stopping all attacks from the air, by having "cannons and missiles"?

Also, I fail to see what the big allure of RAPs are...they're missiles. They just come out of barrels. A missile that could just as easily be stuck under a plane and flown hundreds of kilometers away before it even needs to worry about fuel consumption.

EDIT: the existence of nuclear weapons is not god-moding.

Might be thinking of something like a Torpedo net rather than Slat armor. Although those have never really been that effective. Plus its really easy to mount a cutter on the torpedo or even easier, launch multiple torpedoes.

Well he could just make a floating island with those dimensions and just pile it all up on top of one another like a garbage dump. But my guess is that we can agree that is not what he meant.

I'm fairly certain that underwater slat armor is a terrible idea, fouls up everything from speed and maneuverability to docking to repairs. Plus, this ship is pretty much obsoleted by the concept of "planes", anyway...

Like that thing is going to have speed and maneuverability in the first place. Plus the extra weight totally helps when it comes to the only movement this thing will be doing, vertically down.

Hellraiser-Army wrote:NUCLEAR? What the hell? Now THAT is god mode.

Nonsense. This is NS. Everyone who ain't PT uses tactical nuclear weapons in some form or another.

And I clearly only go to war with the "NO NUCLEAR WEAPONS" Notice on the first post...

Good luck with that. Also, good luck with just dodging regular torpedoes since if you use underwater slat armor you WON'T be able to move away fast enough to avoid the second torpedo just driving through the hole made by the first. That's how much it will ruin your speed.

THANK YOU! Finally! Someone sees the designers perspective in this!

So this project is basically your version of "utterly impractical but awesome BECAUSE of it?" We can understand that. Hell I make stuff like that all the time. But given the nature of this thread we are also obliged to point out just how utterly impractical it is for you. And when you finish your design feel free to quote us and use it as ammo to show just how "awesome" it is.

It is indeed a terrible idea. For one, because water transmits force very nicely already, torpedoes don't have to detonate against a ship's hull to kill it. In fact, this is why they're targeted to explode on proximity beneath the keel, to maximize structural damage without direct impact. They tried something similar in WWI by equipping ships with torpedo nets, but it slowed ships down horrendously and caused a host of other issues while becoming steadily less effective, so they were dropped.

Personal attacks don't help your position at this point.

Anyway.

In my regular-MT nation, I field sixteen aircraft carriers. I also have these wonderful things called bombers that can be strapped with massive AShMs and cruise missiles that will wreak havoc on a ship like this. From far away. Further out than your air defenses cover.

"Green lasers" blinding electronics? Um?

Fun fact. Ships don't sink because stuff penetrates the deck. That is unless said stuff actually hits something important like the fuel or powder magazines. They sink when stuff makes a big hole bellow the water line, preferably right under the keel. Like say a torpedo. After all it is the torpedo bomber and not the anti ship missile that made the battleships of yore obsolete.

Omfg... not everyone has millions of aircraft carriers... in the middle of the sea... :palm:

This is NS. Those that don't usually have coastal defenses with ground and air based AShM's or torpedoes.

or for that matter, send planes in a suicide mission against 200 AAA cannons, missiles, and Green Lasers, a real life tech that "Blinds" electrical equipment...
Or a long range hypersonic AShM. Or a sub with a torpedo. Or hell a cruise missile or an anti ship ballistic missile. Something of that size is dam hard to miss.

oh and true, torpedoes are a problem, but my armor helps... mostly... and the size helps... a lot more...

No, it doesen't. Not at all. Unless you have 100m of armor or something. Remember, armor = mass. Size = mass. Mass = 1 / speed.

and clearly I am surrounded by idiots who never looked at a blueprint before...

How nice of you. Why don't you say that again into the microphone whilst I call the staff.

BEAT THAT!

Omfg... not everyone has millions of aircraft carriers... in the middle of the sea... :palm:

or for that matter, send planes in a suicide mission against 200 AAA cannons, missiles, and Green Lasers, a real life tech that "Blinds" electrical equipment...

oh and true, torpedoes are a problem, but my armor helps... mostly... and the size helps... a lot more...

and clearly I am surrounded by idiots who never looked at a blueprint before...

Modern Anti-ship missiles pack considerably more punch then a 16 inch shell, There's a reason modern warships don't have armor. Its just not worth it as you can't get enough armor to stop an anti-ship missile from knocking you out of action. Also its not that hard to spam Anti-ship missiles. CIWS are not 100% Effective, no matter what you do they will get through.

Also blinding Laser defenses against Anti-ship missiles? Lol. You do realize that anti-ship missiles generally don't use optical tracking which means those laser are completely pointless.

The THEL is a Blue laser. Green laser's are higher then red, But blue get's into the melting metal and frying skull's part of the spectrum.

Now I'm just toying with the idea [it just literally popped into my head], but could one use lasers to shoot torpedoes out of the water?

Not in MT.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

Not in MT.

Also probably not at all. iirc Lasers aren't really that good at firing through water.
