A single Aircraft Carrier is just a big target. So are a number of them operated poorly.I didn't mean that it was a shared tech just that both have the tech in various forms
so in your considered opinion are aircraft carriers now just expensive targets or still viable?
When the US Military decided to use our Carriers to support the GWOT, we possitioned four of them in the Persian Gulf, and two more in the Red Sea. I suspect we also had 6 or 8 Submarines, and a combined fleet of screening vessels protecting them.
Through history, only three countries have ever opperated aircraft carriers with any level of success. Britian used them through WW2 and still opperates them today, Japan was very good at using them in WW2, and the United States learned rapidly by conflict with Japan and ultimately outbuilt and outfought them.
