One of the goals of the new Ford(shudder) Class is to reduce build time and the associated man hours. A big thing will be no steam cats. The steam system is large and takes a lot of time to fabricate and install. Running wires is easier.
I would deploy all the Ford class vessels to the Atlantic. That way, we would be assured there’s no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe.

The last Nimitz Class built, CVN GHW Bush, has no steam cats.
