    ELEVEN Carrier Strike Groups....

    (and I'm by no means naive about what the Navy needs, I know that the whole Navy can't be at sea all the time, but ELEVEN seems kinda much...)

    Do we have any Kossack Anchor Clankers that can comment intelligently about this?

    I don't want to hurt the Navy, but ELEVEN?

      Yes, I mean that in earnest.

      If we stop invading other nations for sport, there's no reason to have super-carriers.

      No one else has them.  Smaller carriers offer much more versatility for the same dollar.  

      They're the equivalent of building battleships in 1945, or tall castles in 1650.
