Battleships

#40
I would say no.

The problem is not that a modern Battleship could not be made survivable. Its about political will and the statement that you give when you build a Battleship.

A modern battleship roaming the open seas.... can you imagine that? It would be fast, heavily armored and outgun anything short of a carrier. What navy could even stop it?

Its mere existence signals bad times for any merchant vessel on the seven seas.
For what purpose have you built this thing? Not as a defensive tool, that is for sure (hey unless you want the most defensible tourist attraction ever...).


Building this means implying that you are willing to use it. An arms race would start and that... did not went well last time.


So, its not about how feasible it is. Its a matter of simply not doing the thing that would obviously only start trouble.

There is a reason there are no KEW stations in orbit.... because sane minds agreed that this sorta spaghetti can only do one thing: turn the world into a more horrible place than it is already.
