    I hope to dont do that!

    imply_tha_best, on 20 June 2014 - 04:44 PM, said: Well as far as i recall Yamato was the biggest battleship ever constructed. Yes.But Bismark sunked actualy the pride of Royal Fleet ,H.M.S. Hood.Bismark is far more known that Yamato.And it more legendary than Yamato. KiloIndie, on 20 June 2014 - 09:24 PM, said: the true equivalent of a battleship today is a nuclear submarine, both in tonnage and firepower. typhoon class subs displace 48000 tonnes, and pack a hundred thousand times more firepower... The advantage of today's submarines are that they cary nuclear balistic missiles.And they are abe to launch them "secretly". KiloIndie, on 20 June 2014 - 03:09 PM, said: actually not a bad comparison. tankers have to be exceptionally strong builds too, while carriers carry vast amounts of aviation fuel. normalization of hull forms as all builders strive for maximum efficiency through water means they all tend to look the same. oil tankers are quite a bit bigger than aircraft carriers though : Biggest tanker: Knock Nevis!Hehehe!!!!

    Great article!I believe that the scraping of the lucky-E {WW2 Enteprise} was a crime.From Langley to Gerald R. Ford times change so fast.....

    What if the War began in 1944? Royal Navy Battleships

    Still Germany could in the war far easier if it was started on 1944. About heavy water: Heavy water is used in certain types of nuclear reactors, where it acts as a neutron moderator to slow down neutrons so that they are more likely to react with the fissile uranium-235 than with uranium-238, which captures neutrons without fissioning. The CANDU reactor uses this design. Light water also acts as a moderator but because light water absorbs more neutrons than heavy water, reactors using light water for a reactor moderator must use enriched uranium rather than natural uranium, otherwise criticality is impossible. A significant fraction of outdated power reactors, such as the RBMK reactors in the USSR, were constructed using normal water for cooling but graphite as a moderator. However, the danger of graphite in power reactors (graphite fires in part led to the Chernobyl disaster) has led to the discontinuation of graphite in standard reactor designs. Because they do not require uranium enrichment, heavy water reactors are of concern in regards to nuclear proliferation. The breeding and extraction of plutonium can be a relatively rapid and cheap route to building a nuclear weapon, as chemical separation of plutonium from fuel is easier than isotopic separation of U-235 from natural uranium. Among current and past nuclear weapons states, Israel, India, and North Korea[citation needed] first used plutonium from heavy water moderated reactors burning natural uranium, while China, South Africa and Pakistan first built weapons using highly enriched uranium. In the U.S., however, the first experimental atomic reactor (1942), as well as the Manhattan Project Hanford production reactors that produced the plutonium for the Trinity test and Fat Man bombs, all used pure carbon (graphite) neutron moderators combined with normal water cooling pipes. They functioned with neither enriched uranium nor heavy water. Russian and British plutonium production also used graphite-moderated reactors. There is no evidence that civilian heavy water power reactors—such as the CANDU or Atucha designs—have been used to produce military fissile materials. In nations that do not already possess nuclear weapons, nuclear material at these facilities is under IAEA safeguards to discourage any diversion. Due to its potential for use in nuclear weapons programs, the possession or import/export of large industrial quantities of heavy water are subject to government control in several countries. Suppliers of heavy water and heavy water production technology typically apply IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) administered safeguards and material accounting to heavy water. (In Australia, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation (Safeguards) Act 1987.) In the U.S. and Canada, non-industrial quantities of heavy water (i.e., in the gram to kg range) are routinely available without special license through chemical supply dealers and commercial companies such as the world's former major producer Ontario Hydro. Current (2006) cost of a kilogram of 99.98% reactor-purity heavy water, is about $600 to $700. Smaller quantities of reasonable purity (99.9%) may be purchased from chemical supply houses at prices of roughly $1 per gram.[42] That its show the needance of heavy water to Germany's nuclear program. About economics i must admit that you have right.

    Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carriers

    Nimitz-class aircraft carriers have start to aging.They old power generators are unable to suport modern electromagnetic weapons ,power modern electronic warfare systems ,lazer point defence system and other future technologies.Also they catapults are unable to launch correctly U.A.V. drones and other surveilance and combat drones.So the U.S.N. desided to construct a new type of super aircraft carrier ,the Gerald R. Ford-class with hull number CVN-78. Gerald R. Ford-class Gerald R. Ford sailing through the James River in November 2013. It was laid down on 2007 on Newports News Shipbuilding, the ship will be commisioned on 2015 and it undergo tests.Overall cost will be $14 billion on research development and building ,the carrier it self cots $9 billion.Its daily operating cost will be $6.5 million.The carrier will be able to upgrade to future technology in constrast with Nimitz-class that cannot upgrade more.The two A1B nuclear reactors will provide the needed power for the ship ,triple power from A4W of Nimitz-class. The Gerald R. Ford been constructed. The Gerald R. Ford-class carriers will use ,instead of the classic steam catapults ,an Electromagnetic Aircaft Launch System {EMALS} allowing feedback control of the catapult's power ,furter extending the life of aircafts airframe and allowing the launch of airplanes with sencitive equiperment.Also the new Advanced Arresting Gear will be used to prevent the stress on airframe and making UAV's landing safier.If you have noticed the command island position have moved back to allow more planes to be refueled faster and with more safety.The number of aircraft lifts will be reduced from the pevious Nimitz-class , four to three. Gerald R. Ford with it constuction finished. The catapults of the ship will be four ,two on front and two on back.The ship will be able to sustain 160 sorties per day for +30 days ,with maxinum of 270 sorties per day.The carrier will have top-end radar system the DBR.The complement will be fewer from Nimitz-class because of many automatetion systems.It also worth to refer the Plasma Arc Waste Destruction System {PAWDS} ,that will treat efectively all the waste that was generated. The Second Gerald R. Ford-class carrier ,John F. Kennedy {CVN 79}. The Gerald R. Ford-class is possible to equip with further developed technologies so the U.S.N.believe that it could remain in service for ninety years ,until 2105.The ship will be capable of carying several aircraft types such as Boeing F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet ,Boeing EA-18G Growler ,Grumman C-2 Greyhound ,Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye and Lockheed Martin F35C Lightning II ,Sikorsky SH-60 Seahawk helicopters and unmaned combat air vehicles like Northrop Grumman X-47B.Its worth to mention also that the design of the ship is such ,to reduce radar visibility.

    The Great Italian Count

    USS Laffey...The ship that survived from 62 attacking japanese aircafts and kamikazes.Here AA maded good job.Also Akagi was a converted Amagi class battlecruiser so it had some inferiority.Also the position of AA's on Akagi was very bad and didnt allowed them to fire on very high arc ,so there were a big disadvantage to dive bombers.
