    The two lifts are the same size, so what fits on one will fit on the other. The max payload for the lifts is 70tonnes, and an empty F-35B weighs just 13 tonnes. Remember for safety reasons you don't fuel or arm them until they are on deck! 547984_361549027220184_360780940630326_999455_1392308900_n.jpg

    Real Naval Art work, congratulations UK, and while I could only wish they were CATOBAR, I'm thankful for two STOBAR carriers, and the birds that will populate them, Go F-35B,,, actually the Marines will enjoy the company, and the commraderie!

    Yes and for safety reason also on US CVN JP-8 used by USAF and provided by tankers to USN Aircrafts is degassed from USN aicrafts on the flight deck before aircraft going in the hangar USN want for security rules only birds with JP-5 it's fuel
    in the hangar.

    Other d├ętails proving rules and military capacity are completely different in war time in peace time CVN must refuel when he have minimum 60 % of the aviation fuel so 40 % really usable, in war time 20 and 80 % ! coz the fuel in fund of the tank can to be of less good quality.
    Here :) i post other very interesting datas later
