These are the 20 aircraft carriers in service today

Former Defense Secretary William Cohen was fond of saying that without “flattops” the US has “less of a voice, less of an influence.” Evidently, many of the worlds nations also believe this is true.

The last few years have seen a number of interesting developments for aircraft carriers. Some nations, like India and Spain retired aircraft carriers, while China commissioned its first aircraft carrier, and the UK returned to the rather exclusive carrier owners club.

The US commissioned its newest aircraft carrier in 2017 — the USS Gerald R. Ford — the first in the Ford-class. Business Insider got a chance to tour the Ford last year.

In all, 20 aircraft carriers can carry and launch fixed-wing aircraft are currently in service around the world.

  1. There are more than 20 carriers the us has 11 uk has 2 India has 2 China has 2 Italy has 2 Spain has 1 Thailand has 1 France has one and that's 22 can you read or research

  2. Surface ships are merely targets seen by anybody with or with access to satelites. Submarines are the true keepers of the ✌. Can't see em can't touch em but they can see and touch you. Hard.

  3. How can a copy be used to defeat the original ? There are always discrepancies and short comings. Also, communism carries an ability to destroy the creative, odd opinion, and exceptional. insight.

  4. Anyone besides the US have hopeless carriers. We pulled in behind the Thai carrier in 2015 that thing is a rusting joke as is the rest of their fleet. We here in Australia just purchased 2 medium sized carriers they’re a joke running on diesel they barely make it any where and it costs a fortune. We here in Australia believe anything nuclear is in fact a bomb waiting to go off 🙄 Australians are incredibly stupid and hysterical hence why we are fracking and destroying all our underwater wells and agricultural areas well we sold it all to China and they don’t pay us any tax so yeah good move Australian government.
