  1. I honestly thought this was another of those videos that contain facts already known like "32. Aircraft carriers store aircraft!" But some of the facts in this video are actually unknown to me, thanks!

  2. Three of the aircraft you mention have been retired from service. The F-14 last flew in 2006, the S-3B Vikings left frontline service in 2009, and the EA-6B prowlers were phased out and replaced by EA-18G Growlers from 2009 to March 2019. The F-35C if now operational for Nimitz and Ford -Class carriers, and the F-35B is replacing the Harriers on the Wasp and America-class Amphibious Landing ships.

    The US Navy has also decided to replace the C-2D Greyhound with the less capable CMV-22B for the COD role.

  3. Fun fact; the American navy has over 3,000 people on one ship, even more in some cases. Whereas the UKs aircraft carriers only have 1,600 when at full capacity (that’s with embarked forces) this is because the Royal Navy sailors has multiple roles whereas the US don’t. Meaning if you are a fire fighter on an American carrier, that is all you do.

  4. I'm pretty sure that industrial age engineers didn't know that much about modern steam turbines. The concept, yes, the actual usage no. Steam on a nuclear aircraft carrier is not nearly the same tech as that used in the industrial age.

  5. Just for the record, no US aircraft carrier has been sold or transferred to another nation. All of them were either sunk in combat, sunk in testing, turned into museums or scrapped.
