You may have heard that there is no easy way to sink an aircraft carrier. In our case, there is almost no way to sink a modern US Navy ship! These expensive and advanced military vessels are deployed and operating in every ocean in the world. This means that it is really important for the US Navy to protect them from potential threats. Therefore, it was built and deployed in such a way that it would be almost impossible to sink such a ship. Without further ado, let's see how this was achieved. US Aircraft Carriers Are the Beasts of the Oceans Considering the US Navy is the largest in the world, it is clear that it operates the most advanced and capable aircraft carriers. The US Navy has a total of eleven active aircraft carriers. However, many people believe that there are more than ten. This is because they incorrectly view amphibious assault ships as aircraft carriers. The largest aircraft carriers of the US Navy are the Nimitz Class and the Gerald R Ford Class. The Nimitz Class ships have been operating since 1975 and are now the second largest airlines worldwide. Holding the record for largest aircraft carrier in 2021 alone, Gerald R lags behind the Ford Class. It is capable of carrying more than 75 aircraft and is powered by a Bechtel A1B reactor. The Gerald R Ford Class carrier is a valuable subsector of the Nimitz Class. Its single reactor is more convenient and powerful, and the ship is equipped with advanced systems and a number of modern features. While these two carriers are considered the best in the world, the UK and Japan also operate excellent carriers such as Queen Elizabeth class and Shinano respectively.
