    I would've thought the info you sought was classified (it'd be operationally relevant as it's directly related to her endurance)

    what's released to the public is "info" like capacity of a chow line; from what distance a radar could detect a tennis ball etc., so that fanbois have something to talk about while it's meaningless or vague EDIT and sometimes could be even, ehm, deliberately modified

    Funny enough, it's said that the Daring classe has half an olympic-pool worth of fuel storage capacity.

    Well if you Know any fuel capacity for a conventionnal carrier I'm interessed.

    I've now quickly searched yandex.ru
    вместимость топлива адмирал кузнецов
    and my second-highest hit is http://www.bolshoyvopros.ru/questions/2271255-skolko-gorjuchego-potrebljaet-admiral-kuznecov.html
    in the first sentence saying like 10kt of fuel oil, unspecified diesel fuel (and 2.5 kt aviation fuel)

    don't quote this to comment on my quick translation, to tell me you don't believe that link or what ever

    ... now googled
    carburante portaerei cavour (or something like that, my Italian is rudimentary)
    and according to
    https://marinecue.it/portaerei-cavour-nave-militare/11729/
    "... con una capacità di 2.500.000 litri di carburante navale F76"

    = 2.1kt assuming a density of NATO F-76 to be 0.84

    again, don't quote this to naysay

    Love to see those F-35Bs on the RN carriers.

    Alos love to see these on there...finally. At least something!

    They need some ESSMs and some RAMs too though.

    As I say 3-4 Phalanx is better than nothing, but when you have a max of two shooters with nly 48 silos reach, you need more. But glad to see these on there anyhow.

    It would be interesting to see if there is space for CAMM missiles
