    I will even give you 3,000 tons full and you're still not going to get 4 helicopters operating off that ship. Sorry but your idea of "extra stowage" is just not an even remotely plausible idea. And again, you have not even shown that it is even physically possible in the first place.

    In absence of a physical model at my disposal to physically demonstrate anything, and in absence of either of us knowing the relationship between displacement and provision for operating helicopters from a ship at a certain pace I think the discussion about this particular topic has reached an effective end.

    Sure, but even if you had the specs and knew it was physically possible for that thing to carry 4 helicopters, I think you will still have the mountain to climb here, not me.

    Well my position is fairly limited in nature, I think, as I deliberately framed it saying that it would not be any sort of sustainable long term procedure and am more importantly I am merely suggesting it as a possibility rather than as something that will definitely come to pass. If I were arguing that it would definitely happen or definitely possible then I'd need presentation of much more thorough proof.

    Ok, in that case I think it's equally possible the production trimaran will have a rail gun. I don't have to show evidence for it because my position is limited in nature since I am merely suggesting it as a possibility.

    I mean, considering that the ship is being offered with an electric propulsion system, such a prospect is not impossible for the future.

    Yes, few things are "impossible", including rail guns and 4 helos operating off a 3,000 ton ship. The sky is the limit here.

    This is *allegedly* a technical drawing of 054B's intake stack...
