The Last Jedi
Oh well I goffed up again..hence forth I shall not post in this thread, I'm to embarrassed.
It Guaranteed far more carrier availability for 17 years than that found in single nation carriers. Basically I am pointing out much as that article you posted did that the USN had carriers in operation for 17 years with out gap until the period you point to. You however want to jump on that period. Which was the first and a small gap in 1.75 decades. But had there been a need a carrier group could have been pushed to sea.well not even ten carriers "guarantee" continuous deployment of at least one of them;
I'm guessing that number should be twelve (or more of course) while leaving it for strategists of the navies building and operating carriers
oh you'reIt is a dangerous dormant nuclear volcano awaiting a sudden eruption, sending all sailors on board into a Fukushima-like nuclear furnace.
Any warship is sinkable, if it is floatable, especially in an era dominated by space-based surveillance and high velocity glide missiles. This is determined by the law of physics and no warship can get away from it.
A fundamental difference lies between a nuclear carrier and a conventional carrier when being hit by missiles and about to sink during wartime. The nuclear carrier has the potential to become an erupted nuclear volcano, killing all sailors on board and endangering nearby warships with nuclear radiation and contamination, while the conventional carrier will only turn to a dead rock, leaving room for sailors to maneuver a self-rescue, or to be rescued by nearby friendly warships.
Nuclear carriers are white elephants that have no place in a naval battle between two powers in today's world. They may be even unable to sail near the war zone at all. The crew of a nuclear carrier will likely revolt if they know they are sailing into the firing zone of a capable enemy, because no one on board would want to die as a guinea pig inside a Fukushima furnace.
Nuclear carriers are a thing of the past, not a thing of the future.
