DCNS Rxx aircraft carrier proposal

Here is the DCNS conventional powered aircraft carrier proposal for the french navy.
The design is very similar to the Romeo project presented in 2005 but.scaled up. On the the pictures (A big thanks to Xav ;) ) we can distinguish the following items :
  • The third shaft
  • Apparently 2 x 8  aster missiles launchers  (4 x 8 on the CdG).
  • A Heracles radar system on a high tower

  1. One tower seems to make more sense than two; use technology to compensate the trade-off associated with lacking a dedicated forward (for navigation) and a rearward (for aviation) tower.
