RHIB storage area General storage area Sea Fighter - Above the bridge is a small flight operations station with room for only one operator.
This glass enclosed station provides an excellent view of the entire flight deck, and allows the operator to coordinate the approach and landing of helicopters, and loading of the vessel's mission containers [MissionContainerTypes]as well as providing visual aid for navigation.
Turrets All the turrets on the refitted Iowa will have a capability similar to the German Army's PzH integrated into them. The PzH turret includes a phased array radar on the front glacis for monitoring outgoing rounds and correcting for windage. Laying can also be automatically provided via encrypted radio links from rear area command.
This will allow forward observers from the Marine Corps, Army, and Air Force to automatically send fire mission info directly to the Iowa without intervention from her crew. The front mounted radar system will allow the Iowa's on board computers to correct shell trajectories as needed, again without intervention from the crew.
Turret 2 will be removed from the hull. There is damage to the center gun, and removing it will provide spare weapons for the remaining two turrets. Turret 3 will be moved from it's current location at the rear of the ship to the Turret 2 location in the ship's bow.
The Turret 3 location and surrounding crew quarters will then be converted to house both an automatic ammunition handling system and a VLS system based on the Mk57 Advanced VLS. According to Harpoon Database, each turret weighed tons, so I'll need to counterbalance it with something else.
The former Turret 2 will be moved ashore to provide a land-based facility to fill the following roles: These armored doors effectively raise the level of the afterdeck, and provide multiple function space on the afterdeck while also balancing the ship.
Doors open like bomb bay doors lift to port and starboard in order to protect RHIBs stored in this area. Turrets 1 and 2 get armored doors in back or top like the M1 Abrams. Provide crew and weapon protection by allowing the force of an explosion to blow up and away or out and away from the ship.
Addresses the safety issue that befell the Iowa in the explosion of Turret 2.
Ammunition blow out panels similar to those on the M1 Abrams tank family will serve to protect the crew and also facilitate the use of automated reloading systems. Increase the amount of armor around the turret barbette to force explosions up and away from the ship.
This is equivalent to megawatts of propulsion energy. After careful consideration of updated fixed pitch propellers, skewback propeller designs, variable pitch propellers, podded propulsion systems, and various waterjets, the refitted Iowa will use compact axial-flow waterjets [rrwj] to provide propulsion for the Iowa.
There are several benefits to axial-flow waterjets: Increased maneuverability - Waterjets use thrust redirectors instead of rudders to steer the ship.
These redirectors allow for increased maneuverability and even allow the ship to stop quickly. This maneuverability is a good thing in a warship.
Quieter than propeller systems - Waterjets are much quieter than traditional propeller based propulsion systems. This is the reason they're used on modern submarines. Since one of the criticisms of the Iowa is that she's loud, quieting her propulsion down is a good thing.
Lightweight - This means more tonnage is available to the ship for weapons, sensors, and other payloads. In addition, the use of lighter propeller shafts saves at least tons of weight that was taken up by the shafts needed by the previous propeller system. Increased protection and reduced maintenance costs - The waterjets used by the Iowa will have most of their mechanical controls located within the hull of the ship.
This removes the need for an external dive team to install and inspect the mechanical controls, which reduces maintenance costs. Waterjets are proven in Naval and Coast Guard service.
They're used on several Navy and Coast Guard ships, ranging from the Sea Fighter concept vehicle to service auxiliary ships supply ships. The conventional waterjets used on the Iowa will take in a lot of water.
This water will increase the weight of the aft of the ship, which in turn will help balance out the loss of Turret 3 and its ammunition. Finally, using waterjets will eliminate one of the most annoying features of the Iowa: The "jackhammering" effect when running at full speed.
This occurred because the forward props sent turbulent water into the aft props. By moving all the waterjets to the same frame in the Iowa's hull, that turbulent water is eliminated. To get the megawatts of power needed, the Iowa will have to be fitted with at least four Kamewa waterjets.
Each of these waterjets will be driven by a single 67, HP permanent magnet motor.COMPONENTS.
