    Let's not get into Physics cus I have a PhD in the subject

    There's a reason why USN is the best in the world, simply because they keep innovating, improving and making things better, they never stand still

    Since and during WWII USN has operated dozens an dozens of carriers, each iteration adds knowledge and experience and the result right now is the Ford Class which sits in a league of its own nothing comes close not even two Queen Elizabeth Class could perform the sortie rate and bombs on target at that range that a single Ford Class could do

    Call a spade a spade, we can all criticise things reality is always what counts, USN operates 10 aircraft carriers, 9 amphibious assault ships and 9 transport docks soon to rise to 11,10 and 10 all at a level of technology generation ahead of anyone else, as soon as the last ships is inducted the next class is already on the drawing board, that's called development

    Okay, I am using this post to start the new Aircraft Carrier III Thread on SD.

    Once a thread gets up to 500 pages, it has become time to start a new thread.This one is past that number.

    I will try and use this policy as I know Deino is Doing in the Air Force threads.

    I think it makes good sense.

    So, please post new Aircraft in the new Aircraft Carrier III Thread.


    Here are those GREAT pic of the Izumo coming into port. This happened yesterday in Japan I believe. Really lets you appreciate how big this vessel is...and what she really is.
