Does this ship have a defined mission? It is not clear from the description (How many VLS cells? What do they hold?) , but my impression is it is too focused on point defenseThere is a Helipad, several AA Mini-guns, a Coil-gun main turret, VLS cells and about 7 missile turrets each carrying a dozen missiles.
Spend a little more time looking at the area below the waterline.I mostly based this design on several real life modern DDGs
Agreed.looking at it again the gun looks too big and/or the turret looks too small.
Firstly thank you for your comments and criticism.Does this ship have a defined mission? It is not clear from the description (How many VLS cells? What do they hold?) , but my impression is it is too focused on point defense

Glad to see you removed the swastika from the german soldier's helmet. Its the sort of details that people doing this type of photoshop work often forget to do.Some Propaganda Posters for TL-191
this feels oddly familiar......
I've posted the Immediate Action rank insignias here if you're interested:Some Alternate British history goods. The logos for the Immediate Action Organisation are from the movie It Happened Here. The rest is presumable from OTL.

That's a lot of depressing back-story for such a pretty picture.View attachment 524131
50's aesthetic meets space age meets radical expansionist America!
The Berlin Blockade goes hot. America and the USSR duke it out, leading to a catastrophic conflict which makes World War II look like a playground quarrel. Society fights itself into a modern version of the Dark Ages, where societal progress is null but military advancements makes technology go many decades into the future. The shattered remnants of Europe and the Soviet Union collapse into chaos as the United States plunges into a dormant isolationism.
This state of affairs remains until the 1980's, when a spacefaring mission to Mars comes into contact with an intelligent alien civilization which is technologically somewhere in the Bronze Age. War is inevitable: the United States leads a brutal colonization of Mars which is fairly similar to the conquest of the American West, in which these aliens (called "Martians" in true 50's fashion) are virtually exterminated, and the remainder are enslaved to serve human settlers.
It is soon revealed that the Solar System is populated with an enormous variety of alien species, each with a varying degree of technological progress, although humanity ranks very high in the stellar hierarchy. Increasingly militaristic and authoritarian, the United States becomes a radical Christian regime, in which "Manifest Destiny" is considered a mandate of God and a "New Inquisition" pretty much carries out interplanetary genocide in the name of "evangelization".
This here is a recruitment poster released by the National Evangelization Board of the American Space Exploration Agency, as part of the American New Pioneer Program. May expand on the lore later.
