There is no complete clarity with the power plant yet - it will be nuclear or turbine.
As for weapons. “It is proposed to arm dreadnoughts with an electromagnetic gun capable of launching projectiles at a distance comparable to what cruise missiles are now able to overcome; hypersonic rockets flying at speeds above 5 Mach; torpedoes that can reach speeds in 300 nodes due to the fact that they will move in a bubble of gas that will reduce friction; lasers to hit air targets, ”the newspaper said, referring to the developers.
According to the engineers, the command post will be equipped with a holographic volume map.
In addition, the developers promise that due to advanced technologies, the crew size will be sharply reduced - from standard for modern ships 200 people to 50.
