Navy Aircraft Carriers Might Just Be Unsinkable. Here's Why.

Navy Aircraft Carriers Might Just Be Unsinkable. Here's Why.The bottom line on aircraft carrier survivability is that only a handful of countries can credibly pose a threat to America’s most valuable warships, and short of using nuclear weapons none of those is likely to sink one.  Although the Navy has changed it tactics to deal with the proliferation of fast anti-ship missiles and the growing military power of China in the Western Pacific, large-deck aircraft carriers remain among the most secure and useful combat systems in America’s arsenal.  With the unlimited range and flexibility afforded by nuclear propulsion, there are few places they can’t go to enforce U.S. interests.  And at the rate the Navy is investing in new warfighting technologies, that is likely to remain true for many decades to come. Large-deck, nuclear-powered aircraft carriers are the signature expression of American military power.  No other combat system available to U.S. warfighters comes close to delivering so much offensive punch for months at a time without requiring land bases near the action.  As a result, the ten carriers in the current fleet are in continuous demand from regional commanders — so much so that extended overseas combat tours are becoming the norm.
