Design a ship/doctrine that won't be intimidated by pic related.

I read this like fourty times and I still do not know what this thread is about.

A giant amphibious battleship that merely crawls up out of the water and over the peninsula. It can rest atop it and provide cover as the rest of the ships pass through.

Or just have some fucking planes fly ahead.

Pic is Straight of Hormuz. It's an important shipping lane, choke point, and super dangerous for Navy ships if anybody anywhere near by wants to contest control of it.

Design a ship specifically to deal with it. What would it look like?

create a USMC base that houses tactical nukes as well as two Wasp class and their supporting ships. Throw in some land based mobile Harpoon launchers and have them constantly practice against old ships. Plus have a rapid deployment squadron of naval helicopters that would take part in mining the straits or would take part in anti-ship operations.

Then get an airbase in Saudi Arabia that has B52's and B2's and a few raptors and EW aircraft

other than that, nothing.

Are we completely ignoring that air planes exist?

Send in the ACE before hand with a couple nukes and digging equipment, have them dig the nukes down deep enough to effectively turn the entire peninsula into a deep water channel.

Or more realistically, use hovercrafts to go over the strait so you don't have to do the same steering a ship would need to do. If we want to go into kinda fantasy territory, make something like the Pupa or the Shagohod from MGS, which is pretty much a hovercraft with tracks. I don't know why but it seems like a good idea.

Apparently they declined to remake it a few years back because they thought any re-imagining would ruin the classic appeal.

And that is exactly the reason small boats will get fucking rekt now whenever they approach a naval ship. And you think a carrier passing through the strait with hostile intentions is going to just let a boat come up to it?

And besides, Japs were flying armed planes into wooden carriers in WW2 and they still got the job done. Your little boat fantasies are unrealistic.

navy fag here

Operations Specialist on an Arleigh Burke, we're designed to get hit by missiles for the carriers and launch tomahawks if we're lucky. We literally suck at everything else because our offensive weapons are garbage.

Also he's talking about fast attack crafts that are gonna shoot shit like RPG's at us up close to kill our radars and sensors. We can't defend against a swarm of those effectively at all due to lack of DAKKA
