Knox-Class


We now have full color profiles for the Knox (DE/FF-1052) class. Three configurations are available for these ships: 1. As built without the spray shield on the bow and no air defense weapon on the stern; 2. without the spray shield on the bow but with an air defense weapon on the stern; and 3. with the spray shield on the bow and an air defense weapon on the stern.

Since the installation of the spray shield, MK 25 Sea Sparrow, and MK 15 Phalanx varied widely between ships you must specify what equipment you want when ordering.
