Sondria Regional Message Board
"Arsenal ship" specifically implies it doesn't have any sensors and is just a floating missile magazine that relies on targeting data from other ships or aircraft. "Battlecruiser" on the other hand implies it's a gun armed capital ship with battleship armament and cruiser speed and armor and probably built in the early 20th century.
I would just call it a heavy missile cruiser or CGN.
I knew I could rely on you to pick apart something, but I'm relieved it's the classification and not the vessel itself. :p I'm not super attached to the ABN designation, but it is indeed armored like a battleship and is really intended to be able to absorb damage if necessary, which is why I went with it. I took the baseline numbers for the ship (displacement, length, beam, draft, etc) from 19 classes of battlecruisers, cruisers and battleships. Since it displaces like... two and a half times what the USS Long Beach (CGN-9) displaces, I didn't feel right calling it a cruiser. Since it's a blend of the concepts of an arsenal ship and a battleship, I went with that.
'Deadliest thing' seems to discount the time Rockepeller went swimming during his vacation in the Anchli Isles.
"Battleship" implies big gun armament though. "Heavy Missile Cruiser", which is what the Russians call the WW2 battleship sized Kirov class, is more appropriate. Or just "CGN" which is what that kind of ship would be called with the USN hull designation system. strike cruiser ( hull designatiom CSGN) could also be appropriate. "Arsenal ship" doesn't just mean lots of VLS cells, it refers to the specific concept of a remote controlled ship with minimal sensors and crew that acts as a floating missile magazine for the fleet.
Personally I'd flip-flop the titanium hull and steel armor. The VLS count seems rather high especially with the size of the missiles listed in the statblock. I also think the speed is too fast, I ran the hull numbers in springsharp and to get 40 knots you'd need about 459 megawatts of propulsive power (A supercarrier has about 200 MW of shaft power). If you're going nuclear that implies the reactor would have to be around 1300 MWt which would never fit in a ship that size (that reactor would be bigger than your ship lol). For reference the nimitz reactors are 550MWt and the Ford reactors are around 900MWt (my own estimate). Even if you go with an advanced high temperature reactor realistically you're going from 30% thermal efficiency for a naval PWR to maybe 40% for a land based high temperature gas cooled or molten salt reactor. Nuclear reactors are actually the least energy dense form of naval propulsion, ie a nuclear reactor will be larger than a gas turbine or boiler with the same power output. With a more realistic speed of 30 knots you'd need about 120MW of propulsive power which would then translate into a 550-550MWt reactor (assuming you want about 50 MW of surplus electrical power generation capability).
See, those are tools I don't have and don't have access to. Let's take this to TG.
Holy crap, a coup! Congratulations are then due to the Victor! (This, too, shall pass, Caesar...)
