A120 can mount 16 Mk41 cells so thats 64 CAMM quad packed.
A120 can mount Mk45, 8 Harpoon or equivalent, Phalanx, 2x 30mm's
I am proposing that Arrowhead 120 could be simplified by rearranging the amidships configuration and installing simple port and starboard boat bays. The hanger layout could also be maximised with a double hanger design, one of which could be used as a mulpurpose mission space. This would allow the stern ramp to be removed and replaced with a stern optimised for 2087. By removing the stern ramp it would allow the height of the flight deck to be lowered thereby making a Merlin capable hanger more straightforward. It's the 19m beam that makes so many things possible.
Is this the brochure you are quoting Ron?
