    Hey guys, if you have a mind to do so, take a look at my latest model build/completion. The USS The Sullivans, DDG-68, a Flight I, Burke AEGIS destroyer:


    Here are a few of other pics (lots more, 60, on the thread):

    Six under construction at one time...at some phase or another.

    Eight more planned at this point.

    I believe they will ultimately build as many as 16-20 Flight IIIs.

    So 62 +11 + saying 18 :) : 91 !
    However Fletcher remains the more numerous destroyer Class with 175 units, no comparison much more small and during WWII.

    Yes...even with the Flight IIA tech insert and all of the Flight III ships...at the most which may approach 20, the Burkes will never match the Fletcher class in numbers.

    Flight I - 21
    Flight II - 07
    Flight IIA - 41
    FLight IIA restart - 03
    Flight IIA Tech insert - 08

    (Which makes 52 Flight IIA all together, and 80 Bukres all together before Flight III))

    Flight III (Max) - 20

    So, we may see 100 Burkes in service...which is very phenomenal.

    Ahhh...but in overall capability, they would eat up and destroy all 175 Fletchers, and represent a HUGE capability far in excess of any other destroyer force on earth by themselves.

    China may end up in the mid-2020s with:

    02 x Type 051C
    04 x Sov
    02 x Type 052B
    06 x Type 052D
    24 x Type 052D.
    12 Type 055

    That's 50 DDGs and would be phenomenal, second only to the US Navy in numbers, and all of them very modern.

    But then you have to add 22 Ticos in there and at least 3 Zumwalts (and with a new Presidency, if it the right one, we may see five more of those built)

    So the US has 125-130 major combatant of DDG class or more.

    Now, if we include FFGs, the Chinese will add a total of:

    30 Type 054A/B

    In the mid-2020s the US will have probably close to 30 LCS and FF class which are all uparmed. So the overall totals become:

    80 major surface combatants for the PLA,
    155 major surface combatants for the US Navy.

    This represents a phenomenal growth in numbers and capability for the PLAN. A very hard nut to crack in the Western Pacific.

    The US SSN and SSGN fleet would have to make the big difference, and despite the growth with the PLAN's vs the PLAN SSK and SSN fleet, the US looks like to hold a large qualitative edge there still, even in the 2020s.
