which got me into thinking, would it be simpler and cheaper to upgrade a bare ship as compared to removing something and then reinstalling an upgrade? something to ask the naval engineers......
it may be a blessing in disguise if that were the case......
Adding equipment that wasn't originally meant to be the adds the following complexity:
- Structure. Can the projected mounting point accommodate/support the new equipment?
- Integration. Is the required wiring/cabling for this equipment already available? If not, what would be required to add that equipment
- Power. Can your existing generators support the equipment? If not, what would it take to replace them?
If your just putting back equipment that was removed. You know all rhe answers to the points above are "yes".
