and;Sorry as I've previously posted in many a thread about sinking a CV(N) I've always stated that a conventional weapons would or could "mission kill
a CV but not sink it.
We in this forum have discussed this subject at nasuem. My fellow members you may continue to believe what you will on this subject. Those ^^ are my last words on this topic. Thank you.In addition in May 2005 the USN set out to sink the ex-USS America CV-66 (Kitty Hawk class) with conventionl weapons in a "SINKEX" that was to test what combination of conventional weapons would sink an "Super Carrier".. After three weeks of on & off test the America was still afloat and was eventually sunk by EOD set explosives.
