This thread has me 100% committed to building my own version!
Can someone explain the logic for keeping the optical rangefinder? And, I would think the radar above the rangefinder would not be necessary due to much MUCH more modern surface search radars fitted, right?
This thread has truly inspired me, thanks!

Hey, man! Thanks for showing interest! The logic behind keeping the optical range finders is reliable redundancy. The optical range finders are remarkably accurate, and if the updated, electronic gun fire control system goes down, or if the gunfire control radar goes down, you can shift to the optical range finders and still land accurate shots.

To your second question, should be radar on top of the optical rangefinders still be retained? No, I do not believe so. The SPQ-9Bgun fire control radar can suffice, and if I ever finish this model project, I am seriously considering replacing the aft main battery optical range finder with a second SPQ-9B.
