Been awhile since I've designed a ship and I figured I was getting a little rusty. 

So I decided to start from the bottom and work my way to the top. I will be designing an evolution of custom warships from about 1850 to 1950. 

My first ship is an Ironclad design based on plans for the CSS Mississippi. In addition to being pretty cool looking, it is also relatively simple, letting me get my bearings back in ship design. As I go the ships will get increasingly detailed/ornate. 

Specs: 

  • Length – 250′
  • Beam – 58′
  • Draft – 15′
  • Displacement – 1400 tons
  • Powerplant – x2 boilers, 3x shafts
  • Speed – 7 knots
  • Armor – 4.5″ iron plating on the casemate.
  • Firepower – 16x 15″ smoothbore breech loading cannons

 

For additional info and more to my plans, you can read about it at its home: http://www.navygeneralboard.com/ironclad-design-1/

 

I will attempt to mesh all of these designs with their own fictional histories. Currently working with several people to iron out details and what have you.
