I can only start taking orders next Tuesday...for delivery at a undetermined date in the future...but I need the cash (and lots of it) upfront. Still want to deal?...hehehe.Cool! I'll take three! Can you deliver them a week Tuesday?
I personally believe the technology for water tight hatches on subs is pretty well defined and could be applied to make the lifts water tight. They would be thick and the sealing mechanism would be expensive...but it could be done. There would probably be some compromises on overall depth, but I still believe she could be kept well below the covergence layer.My only concern would be how watertight could the lifts be made as this may be a restricting factor on diving depth, but assuming this is soluble this vessel would be a much more frightening prospect than a Typhoon class SSBN, simply because it would be used!
Such a vessel or undersea Phibron would need several SSNs to protect it as it transited. Probably have a layered defense much like a normal Phibron or CSG with some close in assets and others out along the various threat axis.
Below the surface, all of those antennae, railings, etc. would retract into the hull and be sealed over. The entire thing would be covered with an acoustic coating.Intresting Jeff..That ship better have some excellent sound dampening devices!..Nice Idea!
