Naval Ships (Past, Present, and Future):

This page is a listing of the Naval Vessel Drawings done by Kitsune, Mischa, and [Insert Name] over the years. The drawings come from historic designs, come from present naval vessel, and come from idea about future naval vessels. Some are real vessels while others are fiction. Some fiction vessels are highly probable while others are not.

Historic Vessels:

Larger View USS West Virginia (BB-48): Battleship USS West Virginia was a Colorado class battleship. The Colarodo class were armed with eight 16 inch guns instead of twelve 14 inch guns of the previous class. The West Virginia was a turbo-electric design instead of geared turbines which allowed for excellent subdivision. All secondary guns were in the superstructure. Her top speed was around 21 knots.
(Kitsune).
Larger View USS Missippi (BB-41): Battleship USS Missippi after being rebuilt in the Nineteen-Thirties including an all new tower type superstructure and replacing machinery with improved machinery. Armed with twelve 14 inch guns in four triple turrets for its main battery, the Missippi was an extremely powerful battleship. They were the first American battleships to have a clipper bow.
(Kitsune).
Larger View USS Texas (BB-35): Battleship USS Texas as in looked during the Nineteen-Thirties with most of the casemate weapons have been removed and having a tripod structure replace the original basket type superstructure. Armor has been inproved in various areas as well. New York class battleship and was the first United States battleship class armed with 14 in guns, carrying ten in five twin turrets for its main battery.
(Kitsune).
Larger View USS Texas (BB-35) Battlecruiser Conversion 1936: Battleship USS Texas as she might have looked if she was converted to a battlecruiser with the middle turret removed and rebuilt in a similar style to the Italian Dreadnought "Conte Di Cavour" with a superstructure similar to the USS Missippi and a clipper bow. Original triple expansion engines have been replaced by geared turbines and engine horsepower is assumed to be around 90,000 Horsepower with a top speed around 27 knots.
(Kitsune).
Larger View USS Texas (BB-35) Battlecruiser Conversion 1944: Assuming the Battleship USS Texas was rebuilt into a battlecruiser, this is what the ship might have looked like in 1944 with wartime refits including the addition of radar, all casemate guns being plated over, the addition of six 5 inch / 38 twin mounts, and many additional 40 mm and 20 mm anti-aircraft mounts.
(Kitsune).
Larger View USS Lexington (CC-1): Lexington class battlecruisers were planned as class of battlecruisers armed with four 16 inch guns and a top speed of around 33 knots. Construction was begun soon after World War One. At the time, they had the most powerful power plant. Propulsion was turbo-electric like the Colorado class battleships. These ships were cancelled as part of the Washington Treaty and the USS Lexington (along with the USS Saratoga) were converted to carriers.
(Kitsune).
Larger View USS Newport News (CA-148): Heavy Cruiser Newport News. Her class was the largest heavy cruisers ever built and as large as many earlier battleships. She carried nine 8 inch guns which were automatic loading and she had an extremely rapid amount of fire she could bring on a target. Could likely defeat most battleships in the world due to this although not completed until after World War Two.
(Kitsune).

Modern Vessels:

Larger View USS Ticonderoga (CG-47): Introduced the Aegis missile system to the United States Navy. Uses the basic Spruance class destroyer hull design and were originally designated destroyers. Overweight by many sources. Armed with two rail launchers for SM-2 missiles and five inch guns. As of 2006, all rail armed Ticonderoga class cruisers have been decommissioned except the Thomas S. Gates (CG-51) and 2006 is to be her last deployment.
(Kitsune) & (Mischa).
Larger View USS Lake Champlain (CG-57): Later Ticonderoga class Aegis missile cruisers mounted vertical launch missile systems in place of rail launchers allowing more missiles to be carried. As well, later Ticonderoga class cruisers have a lighter weight Aegis system which further reduces top weight. Still, these ships are considered to be at the upper limited of the Spruance destoyer hull.
(Kitsune) & (Mischa).
Larger View USS Scott (DDG-995): Group of four guided missile destroyers based off the Spruance class anti-submarine warfare destroyer. Originally built for the Shaw of Iran but when he was removed from power, the vessels were transfered to the United States Navy. Have been decommissioned in the United States Navy. Armed with two rail launchers for SM-2 missiles and five inch guns. Uses high hull numbers due to being listed with the Spruance class.
(Mischa).
Larger View USS Burke (DDG-51): Lead ship of the Burke class Aegis guided missile destroyer. It is one of the largest classes of vessels ever built and is the standard United States destroyer. Armed with a single five inch gun and a twenty-nine missile and sixty-one missile vertical launch system. Vessels designed from lessons learned from the attack on the U.S.S. Stark (Perry class frigate) and are constructed from all steel. later vessels of the class have been signicantly modified.
(Mischa).
Larger View USS Oscar Austin (DDG-79): Improved Flight IIA Version of the Burke class Aegis guided missile destroyer. The upgrades include the addition of a hanger for two helicopters, fitting the five inch gun for ERGM rounds, and the missile cells being able to carry additional missiles. The vertical launch missile cells can carry thirty-two missiles forward and sixty-four missiles aft.
(Mischa).
Larger View USS Pinckney (DDG-91): Late Flight IIA version of the Burke class Aegis missile destroyer with the addition of mine hunting equipment (side door) and modified exhaust stacks (likely to improve vessel's stealth.) Torpedo tubes are moved to above hanger deck to make space for mine hunting equipment. The class has Received upgrades throughout their developement and the appearance has changed greatly.
