About this creation



Although she is designated as a helicopter carrier the ship has the same armament as the Enterprise class destroyers which means the ship can also be designated/used as a destroyer
specifications:

length: 640 feet
height(highest point): 145 feet
weight: 30,000 tonnes
speed: 38 knots
range: 22,000 nautical miles
engine: advanced electric/gas turbine engine
armament: 1 MK 47 rapid fire gun, 14 VLS missiles, 6 RAM missiles(rolling air-frame missile)


here you can see 3 type 1 naval helicopters ready for take-off the tripoli class has room for 8 helicopters 3 on deck and 5 below deck.

the island of the ship here you can see the MK 47 gun the overhanging bridge the various masts and navigational equipment and towards the back is the smokestack

the MK 47 gun is an upgrade of the MK 45 gun used by the U.S navy. this is the first Atlantic navy ship to have a gun as the main armament which reduces space for VLS missiles so instead of having 60+ VLS cells it only carries 14

A really nice looking ship. But the choppers seem to be a little to big, a problem i encounter often at my ships. :/ Great build!
