US Navy CGH-67
Artist's impression of a United States Navy guided-missile helicopter carrier (CGH-67) photographed on March 1, 1986.
The description of the image at DefenseImagery.mil calls the design a battlecruiser. I have no other details concerning this ship concept. It is possible that this ship is a concept from the David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center, now Carderock Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center. The David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center researched many Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull (SWATH) and hybrid warship designs and designed many SWATH warship concepts.
