    You can see from the hatches of the Rif system the spacing... from top to bottom the rotary launcher is above the line of the top row of hatches and also above the second row of hatches creating the space between the top two rows, and then the bottom row of launch hatches has the rotary launchers below the line of the hatches.

    That means if you rip that all out the entire front internal space could carry rather more than 96 missiles because with all those rotary launchers there is a lot of empty unused and unusable space. A VLS like UKSK-M filled with SAMs could carry an enormous number of actual missiles in that volume of space... but they are clearly not ready yet.

    Well can pine on about how many extra missiles we can squeeze in, but the honest truth is that it is about quality as well as quantity.... and 80 Zircons, or 40 Zircons and 20 anti sub missiles and 20 land attack Kalibres will be plenty for most missions... would be nice to see them take off those 130mm guns and put on a single 152mm twin barrel gun mount....
