Description

The Conqueror-class guided missile cruiser is a class of large cruisers designed as multi-mission stealth ships.

The class features a number of automated systems and as a result is less expensive to operate than comparable warships. The wave-piercing tumblehome hull form reduces the radar cross-section (RCS) by returning much less energy than a conventional flare hull form.

Originally 32 ships were planned to replace the entire fleet of aging Renown-class missile cruisers, however due to costs overrunning the estimates, the quantity was reduced to 6 in favor of instead retrofitting the current Renown-class

Based on the American Zumwalt-class, with the forward pangola superstructure based on the Russian Lider-class and the rear structure on the British Type 45. Since it has such a diverse background, I may find difficulty making more distinct modern ships for the other nations. oh well
