Unique Carriers - 20 March 2020 Update


Recommended Posts

I personally can`t see any difference between four carrier that we have now...

 

Even the island side number?

All NIMITZ class carriers are going to look the same. Except for the Hull numbers and a few different awards, there's not a lot of going against the grain. The "AB" wings (like the ones under my name) on the Island are designed and painted by the AIR Department guys and you may see some more wings on some Bow's, like the TRUMAN.

 

The ships look great. Could use some more rust but hey!

DO it or Don't, but don't cry about it. Real men don't cry!

I wish to see different liveries for the deck of the carriers. Would add even more veriety.

This isn’t correct, the Reagan and up have some different features. Mostly with the island.

Yes, you are correct. The Reagan and the Bush are different. It's the last of the Nimitz class moving into the Ford class with an entirely new deck config. I'm a 68-75 sailor. The Nimitz class that we have in DCS will more than likely be the vanilla Nimitz class. It would be nice to have the latter in class but I won't hold my breath. Still waiting on the Forrestal class!

DO it or Don't, but don't cry about it. Real men don't cry!

What was promised for the Supercarrier was only the Theodore Roosevelt subclass:

Yeah, but being a retired Navy guy, to us it's all the same! The Nimitz class is just that, but I get why they got to calling it a sub-class. The Reagan and Bush are classified as Nimitz class (another sub-class) but are different in many ways (ex. 3 arresting gear wires instead of 4, island super structure). The GW, Truman and Nimitz ( all of which I served on) are similar on the outside, mostly! If you don't know what to look for, it really doesn't matter! In DCS, you just change hull numbers!

I grew up on and around US Naval bases.  Every time I saw a carrier I could pick it out by the superstructure with few exceptions.  I remember when the Enterprise had the major makeover and that was a big deal.  But even the Ranger Vs Connie had their differences.  Connie had the extra tower behind the island. The carriers deserve to be unique with the kind of attention to detail from DCS.

One thing that's interesting is that the Lincoln has two CIWS turrets on the port and starboard quarters, whereas the others only have one on the portside.

It also has a much wider arc on its forward Sea Sparrow battery for no readily explained reason.

Could anyone tell what date/time frame the different hulls we got with supercarrier right now represent? The Roosevelt for example was commissioned in 1986 but apparently got (like all of the hulls we got?) the RIM-116, which afaik was in general service since 1992 earliest. But when did the Roosevelt receive it? Same for the other hulls planned: what time frame do they represent in the state they are in the sim?

 

Also: are there any plans to represent additional different time frames than the available ones right now? Like a 1982 version Carl Vinson for example. Thinking about how the Carl Vinson being in the Persian Gulf in 1988, cool to make a what-if scenario for that, but the current hull got a 1992+  defense system mounted which also is effective in terms of game mechanics 😉

I believe the carriers represent a c.2017 configuration given the models for 71 and 72 are post-RCOH.

 

 

Would they not have RIM-162 ESSM instead of Sea Sparrow in that case? The Arleigh-Burke should have it too (among other things).

It would be cool to see the Carl Vincent (CVN-70) and Dwight Eisenhower (CVN-69) make it into the Supercarrier module down the road.

 

Indeed, only thing I will say though is that the supercarrier is the Nimitz-Roosevelt subclass which are CVNs -71 to -75.

That depends, do RCOH plans include upgrading the box launchers to accommodate the larger-sized missiles?
