does anybody has some clear pictures or a layout of the rigging for these ships? The attachments on top of the masts for the wires are easy to find, but how and where do these enter the hull?

In this photo you can see where the ones for the upper yardarms terminate: http://www.navy.mil/management/photodb/ ... 8-0167.JPG

In this one, you can see the lower yardarms terminate on the flag bags deck: http://www.navy.mil/management/photodb/ ... 7-0226.JPG

I'd look for more, but gotta run. Go to this site and just type in "ddg" and look for shots that might show you the flag deck and download the high-rez version: http://www.navy.mil/gallery_search_results.asp

The lines on the lower yard arm are for the flags. The upper yard arm are antenna wires and you can clearly see that they go to the arms located on the forward and upper side of the bridge area.

Are there anybody to teach me how to change 90 cells VLS of burke class into 96 cells? The basic form was 32 + 64 = 96 , deduction 6? for 2 crane arm, but how the 96 cells were arranged? Is crane arm removed?

The two cranes were omitted and replaced by three additional cells each. The cells are arranged in groups of eight (8 x 8, 4 x 8 ).

Not sure how to post links, so hope this works! USS Fitzgerald is back in the water. Of note is the upgraded stacks with the shrouded exhausts like later Arleigh Burke class ships. Looks like some upgrades being incorporated into the repair work.

I'm not sure the stacks were upgraded, inasmuch as the conical exhausts were simply removed, perhaps as part of the maintenance period - the photos in the article (and also on the Navy's own gallery site) are from during the ship's repairs, so there's the possibility that the cones will be added back on at the end.

Went back and looked at some older pics of Fitzgerald. You are correct!

The ship from what I can see seems to be still under reconstruction. If you notice in the photos all the vent lovers are missing. They may have remove the upper portion of the stacks to repair or replace parts within the structure.

Indeed, it is a repair thing! Burke DDGs have those stack caps removed frequently. It would be interesting, however, for a Flight I like Fitz to be upgraded with a few FlightIIA features!

Here some photos of USS Ross (DDG-71) made 2019 in Kiel:

USS Ross in Kiel

Ross is a Flight I ship, but modified for defense against ballistic missiles. Her capabilities to defend herself against anti-ship-models are upgraded with a SeaRam launcher, AN/SLQ(v)6 SEWIP Blk II ECM and Mk 59 decoy launchers.

The best 1/700 kit to built her is USS Hopper by HobbyBoss - but it would require the addition of the above mentioned launcher, ECM equipment and decoy launchers.

SeaRAM launcher:

Mk 59 decoy launchers (the twin tubes on the extra platforms):

Some fantastic reference photos. Forrest Sherman is in a yard period right now, and I was wondering if anyone knows if she will get the same upgrades? Which brought up 2 questions:
1. Is there a list of which ships now have Searam?
2. Is there a list of which ships have the Mk 59 decoys?

SeaRAM are on the ships forward deployed to Rota, Spain, for BMD duties because while operating in BMD mode, their older Aegis versions are not able to conduct normal anti-air defence. For now there have been/are five ships: the original four that started in 2015, plus Roosevelt replacing Carney for the second rotation. The other three replacements will come in 2022.

First rotation starting 2015 were Porter, Donald Cook, Ross, and Carney: https://news.usni.org/2015/05/01/bmd-eq ... rota-spain
Second rotation starting with Roosevelt: https://news.usni.org/2020/04/15/destro ... -black-sea

Note that although Roosevelt supposedly has an upgraded Aegis baseline to enable simultaneous BMD and air-defence, it still received the SeaRAM - it may be a hedge in the event that the baseline upgraded was delayed, or they thought it'd be good to have anyway.

On the Mk59 decoys, I think they're pretty wide-spread now that it'd be easier to find ships that don't have those distinctive tubes.
