Aircraft Carrier Thursdays
You may have noticed we have set aside the Thursday posting specifically to discuss the need, or lack of need for the large deck aircraft carrier in modern warfare. We have decided this since we feel most passionate about the issue. As the Air Force has been grudgingly diverted from it’s central air superiority mission recently, which has lessened in importance in recent decades, so we think the Navy should think in terms of small wars and small ships, instead of the massive conventional battles they most often plan for, or even seeing such exquisite battleships like the Nimitz’s as the right weapon for low tech warfare. They may be handy, but it is because there are so powerful which is why we can get by with fewer and fewer as alternatives in the fleet abound.
That is our philosophy anyway. Come and join us on Thursday morning and divergent views are always welcome. Thanks again for your continued interest!
