USS Oliver Hazard Perry - Class FFG-7 Frigate

48.9k CoolPeach  3.7 years ago

Overview:

The Oliver Hazard Perry Class was the main class of frigates used by the US Navy throughout the last 20 years or so, recently being decommissioned in favour of the newer Littoral Class Frigates that we’re designed to replace them. This particular ship features working ordinance (Mark 13 Missile Launcher | 76mm Oto Melara | CIWS | 2x3 Torpedo Tubes) as well as a functioning SH-2 SeaSprite Helicopter. The hull has been panelled (mostly) and thus replicates the real hull shape quite closely. I tried very hard to keep the part count low, and to further improve performance it has disabled drag on most parts (other than a few critical ones). As such, it should run quite smoothly.

Test your skills by taking off and landing back onto the ship, trust me it’s hard. Loads of fun to play with. Enjoy!

More Information:

The Oliver Hazard Perry class is a class of guided missile frigates named after the U.S. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, the hero of the naval Battle of Lake Erie. Also known as the Perry or FFG-7 class, the warships were designed in the United States in the mid-1970s as general-purpose escort vessels inexpensive enough to be bought in large quantities to replace World War II-era destroyers and complement 1960s-era Knox-class frigates. In Admiral Elmo Zumwalt's "high low fleet plan", the FFG-7s were the low capability ships with the Spruance-class destroyers serving as the high capability ships. Intended to protect amphibious landing forces, supply and replenishment groups, and merchant convoys from aircraft and submarines, they were also later part of battleship-centred surface action groups and aircraft carrier battle groups/strike groups.

    I'd like to see just the SH-2 Seasprite, with all the functions like the ground engine and folding rotors.

    The ship uses an XML edited propeller as the main means of propulsion. There’s a single jet engine set on brake to reverse the ship. The engines have been edited so that they don’t deactivate when the AG is off, that allows you to keep sailing while controlling the heli

    Hey what does this ship use to move, engine wise? I plan to build a ship with this helicopter or at least the same system of flight (if that’s ok with you) and I don’t want to interfere with the ships power. Any tips/recommendations?
