Yeah, I understand it's a warship so looks isn't that important. But to me it still looks quite ugly. Like a naval equivalent of a Hummer. Ugly box design.

Would a cruise ship mounted with .22LR rifles look better?

When I flew the A-10 everyone, well, mostly F-15 pilots said it was ugly, even hideous looking. But not the guys on the ground it was supporting. Form follows function.

Looks modern, sleek, radar-proof.... But with that picture it might only hold 10 crewmembers? Have not read up on it yet...

I like the way it looks! Much better than some of the old ships I was on.
