aircraft carrier

Apolitical, gutsy

The Navy sometimes calls itself the “silent service”, yet while shunning the bombast often dished out by the brass hats.

Warriors of the Sea

There is little doubt that between a submarine and an aircraft carrier, the former is comparatively economical and safer to operate, is difficult to be detected (by the opponent), and does not require an accompanying flotilla of surface vessels. Further, one subsurface boat can counter potential hostility in the sea before initiating offensive operations. The visibility of the shape and size of a high-sea aircraft carrier, on the other hand, does look impressive and menacing, but only when the carrier moves as ‘carrier battle group‘.
