ALL they need is a decent a/c to operate from them! the F18 is a 40 year old design of number improver LIGHT fighter, WHERE IS THE ATTACK AND LONG RANGE FIGHTER! to say nothing of the long range anti sub !?????
Bill, there's too much emphasis and worry out there on saving money and whether these ships cost too much to build etc etc. etc.
The press headlines about "Meet the $13B Aircraft Carrier" and how much it cost humours me abit.
Who cares if it cost $13B.. If it cost just $1B the press would say it costs too much. Who out there can really say if the Ford, Zumwalt, LCS, F35, B21 Raider, represent good value for money or not.
These new toys and the folks that design, build, maintain, and operate them are without peer anywhere else on Earth. No other nation will come close to the capabilities that they will bring in the coming decades.
