    Finally 112 confirmed

    They could easily have slipped in another 16

    Should have been 128 for that size and tonnage it would have been real heavy hitter

    Like the South Korean giant Sejong the great class

    There doesn't seem to be an intake facing the helipad like on Burke, but there's another intake grill right in front of the aft VLS.
