Looks like they have gone back to WW1 and using tethered balloons for spotting. How the mighty RN has fallen.

I suspect the "gun" mount would turn about 45' off center so still have to basically point the ship at the target but probably firing rocket assisted guided rounds , the "blimp" is probably a radar equipped quad rotor electrically powered through the cable to get the radar up to 2000ft or so ( would make low level attacks inside 250nm pretty redundant although the US is currently testing the Harpoon replacement which goes 500nm.. )

But what do you reckon to the 'propulsors' if that's what they are?  MHD as Red October?

If the Propulsors are designed for stealth then the enemy sensors will just be tuned to listen to any unusual readings. They sound intriguing though!
