UCAV carrier the USS Obama?
I’ll say I like the UCAV Carrier idea and leave it at that. Here is Thomas Ricks at Foreign Policy.com:
If the global commons (sea, air, space, cyberspace) really is gonna be contested, why does anyone think conventional aircraft carriers and short-legged fighter aircraft are the answer? I think it is time to commission the UCAV carrier the USS Obama, whose hull and aircraft would both be stealthy. With perhaps a crew of fewer than 500 sailors. (Most controllers of aircraft could fly them from Virginia.)
I’ll discuss this concept myself next week. Hat tip to Kiko’s House!
