Thanks for the link Richard, I love that Tiger STOVL conversion with P.1154 Harrier. BTW, are that profiles draw with Photoshop only?

"Paint Shop Pro" in this case - they are raster images, not vectors.

CMN Combattante IV-NG. A 56m FAC(M) offered to Qatar - but beaten by the VT design in that case. From drawings in "Navy International", Sept/Oct 1992.

Another design offered by CMN in the early 1990s - a 72m semi-planing monohull with a flight deck (but no hangar), Crotale-NG, Exocet and 76mm.

The last of the CMN designs - an SES with 76mm, Exocet, Sadral SAM and a collapsible hangar.

The Mobile Continuity Force (MCF), proposed by James T Sollers in the July 1984 edition of the USNI Proceedings. This concepts was that several large ships carrying tools, seeds, libraries etc would hide in the Southern polar oceans. Should a nuclear war then occur, they could return to the US to help rebuild.

I haven’t been able to find any online links to the BMT/UCL mother-daughter littoral warfare combinations. Any chance Richard you could post some more information, perhaps in the unbuilt Naval projects thread?

Please excuse my ignorance, but was this Mobile Continuity Force (MCF) a serious study or fictional?
