Challenger-Class Guided Missile Destroyer

The Challenger class were guided missile destroyers of the Royal Navy. Originally intended as a anti-surface variant of the Dominator-class
guided missile destroyers, the Challengers evolved into multi role warships capable of air defense, anti submarine, and anti surface warfare
thanks to its plethora of sensors, radars, and weaponry.
Design:
The hull of the Challenger Class is a lengthened version of the previous Dominator-class guided missile destroyers, being 30 feet longer
to accomodate more space for fuel and to mount the ASM-22A Dainsleif cruise missiles. The superstructure design and placement of equipment
are totally differ from the Dominator-class.

Propulsion:
The Challenger-class is equipped with four Umber & Lire Type 19 gas turbines which give them a maximum speed of 38 knots, but can reach speeds
up to 42 knots in calm seas.

Armament:

6 x ASM-22A Dainsleif
1 x ASR.130-1A3 DP Gun
2 x ASM.250-6 Anti Submarine Rocket Launcher System
2 x ASR.35-2B(ASR.1-35) Barricade CIWS
1 x Mk.19 Twin Arm Launcher for Juniper S(later Juniper ER)
2 x Quad Garnet Missile Launcher
2 x Mk.4 Triple Torpedo Launcher
4 x .50 HMGs

Aviation Facilities:
Flight Deck and Hangar for [Insert name of helicopter here once I've think of a name and or built said helicopter]

CONTROLS
Throttle=Move Forward
Brake=Move Backward
Yaw=Steering
Pitch+Roll=Control Dainsleif Missiles
Landing Gear=Deploy Safety Nets

AG.1=Main Gun
AG.3=Torpedo and CIWS
AG.4=Juniper Missiles
AG.5=Anti Sub Rocket Launchers
AG.7=Drop Liferafts(Supposed to deploy lifeboats aswell but due to some last minute errors, they had to be solid in place)

*Each Dainsleif Missile has a different name so their respective canisters will open. Due to scale witchraft and lag, controlling the
Dainsleif missile is near impossible.

NOTES
Upon typing this description, I have been trying for almost 3 hours to test everything, but even a PC capable of running Cyberpunk 2077
at atleast 60FPS is struggling to run her, I have encountered several freezes, crashes, and some sort of C++ notification telling me to
contact the game's support team because I probably damaged something. Either way, like 90% of my builds, this thing is flawed, but
I am proud of the outcome, even though performance on both said custom PC and my laptop are less than 1 FPS, I still love her.

The weapon names are a bit messy and some have wrong names from what I listed above. I apologize, and I'll work on those in the future.

Was it fun building her? Absolutely.
Will I do it again? Definitely.

Enjoy

    @UnguidedCylinder Hey man, no problem. I say it as I see it. I'll definitely be sure to keep and eye out for your future work.

    @Dastin I've been actually thinking a while on what to say, but just managed to make a very long reply full of filler. I guess what I just want to say is thank you for those kind words. It definitely gave me more morale(as I've been feeling some SP fatigue for the past few days). I still have a couple of ships planned, and I'll definitely give them the same treatment, or try to at least. Again, thank you!

    I'd just like to chime in and say this is a bloody work of art, patience and time well spent. Every detail on this is jaw dropping and you should be proud of it. This is by far one of the most detailed (and reasonably so) builds I have ever seen posted on the site.

    It not being playable for most (even my fairly alright laptop) pales in comparison to just how good it is. I'm not usually one for over the top builds but this is just excellent. Keep it up.

    Very beautiful, but very useless.
    such a high part count makes it totally unusable.

    @Alanthelegendaryfighter aye, Ocean mod is turned off anyways, I think it messes up custom missiles which is about 90% of the ship

    @CharlesDeGaulle thank you! Speaking of computer dying, everytime I try to open this ship, my PC loses another year of its lifespan

    @Karzigg its a design element suggested by a friend, and I'm glad they did since I can be a bit creative with the placement of the rear mast
