“America cant change spending by reducing the carrier fleet 10%. The cost of the extra ship is a rounding error when compared to [Social Security].”
The thing which should really be driving our economy is the push to Mars and other potentially profitable areas of space exploration. It’s less than clear to me at least that we need manned aircraft on carriers any more or at least it isn’t clear that we need a whole lot of them. Has anybody been doing any sort of manned fighter vs drone fighter gaming or any studies at all?
