Excellent blog. I'm rather fond of the "Cruiser Division" idea. A couple simple thoughts...

1) Missiles are always vulnerable to intercept or CIWs in a way that artillery simply isn't.
2) Between 40-80 nm the radar horizon is a more valuable stealth aid then anything else, and that goes both ways. Some form of airborne spotter/laser designator is required, and it likely has to have some level of speed and stealth.
3) Laser designated rounds will likely get a mission kill much faster due to the ability to pinpoint exactly where the shell goes.
4) The Navy will never do it, as they hate spending a couple bucks to salvage something worthwhile out of a $22 billion poor investment.
