And galleys were a simple proven design for over 2 millenia, but no one in WW2 thought it was a good idea to bring them back. Funny that. I suppose they could've upgraded them, given them engines, some better sails, guns, but then it wouldn't be a galley any more, so they'd call it something else, like 'Akira' or 'Excalibur'. Those are some pretty good names for re-imagined versions of older ships.
