As always, excellent information.
Some quick googling gets me:
- Block III VIRGINIA's use something called "Multiple All-Up Round Canister", which in its current state holds 6 round VLS canisters for Tomahawks.
- The VIRGINIA Payload Module will contain our VIRGINIA Payload Tubes. It seems as though VPT are a little bit bigger than MACs. It appears as though the Block IV boats will have MACs in the bow and use VPT in the Payload Module. The VPM will have a slight hump to keep everything enclosed, which again should help with dimensions.
One thing I haven't seen are any sort of dimensions, outside of the missile being 34.5" in diameter. I haven't spent more than 5 minutes on this yet, so dimensions could be out there just around the corner. If not, I can ball-park it and get to 95% probably. I wonder if there are any Block IV models out there?
As always, thanks for the insight Ralph! And thanks again to David and James too. I never know exactly who I can count on, but I always know I can collectively count on this site for answers like this.
