Looks fantastic, looking forward to seeing more on the deck.

Still wish we could have seen them in CTOL form, when Liam Fox made the change I really hoped it would come off.

The choice was one CTOL carrier or two STOVL carriers. The budget wouldn't stretch to anything else. I think we made the right Choice. The French found out the hard way one carrier only gives you a part time capability, as the ship will have to go in for refit sooner or later and then you're screwed if you need it. With only a single carrier, less aircraft would be needed and the government was seriously talking about limiting the buy of F-35Cs to 48! Impressive ship but singular and vulnerable.cv1a.jpg

MADEX 2019: HHI wins Conceptual Design Contract for ROK Navy LPX-II Amphibious Ship

South Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) was awarded a contract this week for the conceptual design of a next-generation amphibious assault ship known as LPX-II and intended for the Republic of Korea Navy (ROK Navy).

HHI is expected to finish the conceptual design by the second half of 2020, with commissioning with Republic of Korea Navy planned for the early 2030s. The vessel, displacing around 30,000 tons would be based on the existing Dokdo-class amphibious assault ship (LPX-I project) and would be able to accommodate around 20 F-35B STOVL fighters.

During these humanitarian relief missions clean potable water is the #1 need. A Nimitz class can produce 400,000 gallons(1,514,164.7 Liters) of water a day.

yeah I'm no expert, but I would've thought the elevators speed hadn't been limiting combat ops!

I'm not in the MIC Conspiracy though I think ridiculously fast elevators which don't work is an example of creating over-engineered and overpriced 'solutions' to make the Pentagon pay even more;

the companies sure have teams of spin-doctors who come up with fancy 'products' like LCS mission modules concept, so called stealthy 16k-displacing Zumwalts and other game-changers, for example recently the USN asked for like 3b for unmanned 'fleet' without having ConOps! I don't believe it's Admirals creating this type of nonsense, I think it's marketing departments and their consultants in action, selling EDITED

Normal speed video of an F-35B takeoff from QE. Quite sedate, but dramatic with the spray..

And as a bonus...QE hangar with F-35B and Merlin loaded (and a lot of test gear).

Thanks for posting Jura. This photo shows the fan boi's what a carrier hangar deck is like under operational conditions. Look at all that extra but necessary gear in there. When uninformed persons make drawings of carriers with aircrfat crammed in the hangar they make no account of the support gear needed.

Yes, nice video Timmy, always fun to see the leisurely pace of too much thrust!
