Yup. I swear sometimes that people think that a warship is nothing but a big long pointy metal box of weapons with an engine in the middle. Do these critics really beleive that experienced naval architects are all
ing idiots, and that amateurs in armchairs know better then the professionals?
Even the professionals comes up with stupid and tedious stuff like a shipping container based launch units on combat ships and awful designs which ends up in one or two units.
There was no more room inside the ship so they had to use containers, you do realize MODELS are just that Models that have never went through a design phase right?. Just some guys put it together to try and interest the MOD for funding.
The container while not ideal was an ingenious method of turning the patrol ship into a nice multi-functional vessel and providing the ability to mount arms it otherwise wouldn't be able to BECAUSE THE HULL WAS FILLED.
Project 22160 is a good ship for what it's DESIGNED for which is a patrol vessel, and I have praised the Russians many times on the 22160 and will do so more if it comes up.
