    There's no evidence that is going to happen. Those blocks could be for any new ship, not necessarily a carrier. We've heard rumours of certain possibilities but nothing certain.

    And if they are building another carrier at DL after DL is done with CV-17 (which is 002, but in SDF the thread is still incorrectly called 001A), chances are it will be the same or similar to the design being built at JN (003), i.e.: a catapult carrier rather than ski jump.


    Let's not create new threads without basis.

    In the off-chance that this is indeed a new carrier (which I sincerely doubt), then it is far likelier to be the CATOBAR 004, possibly nuclear, rather than a third STOBAR carrier.

    But Bltizo is right, there is currently insufficient evidence that signals the construction of a carrier at DL.

    If there is a new carrier emerging, it's much more likely to be nuclear-powered CATOBAR than a third conventional STOBAR. But by far the most likely is that it would be another conventional CATOBAR.

    They might just be keeping the blocks there just in case if any of the two carriers need to come back for repairs.

    17 will definitely visit the dock at least once more before commissioning.
