90,000 Tons of Diplomacy - Mac by tonyrom 90,000 Tons of Diplomacy - Mac by tonyrom
The United States' most advanced Aircraft Carrier class, the Nimitz Class. There are now NINE of them (CV-68 to CV-77, all named after what their Navy thinks as the greatest American Presidents) lurking the world's oceans.

Each of them has: 64 to 85 fighter and support aircraft, Four Sea Sparrow launchers, An array of 20mm guns on all sides, two Nuclear Reactors (you know it can go for 20 years without changing its uranium fuel), and 6,000 men and women operating it.

The closest to the Philippines right now is the USS Ronald Raegan Carrier Vessel Battle Group, consisting of two Los Angeles Class Nuclear submarines, Four Destroyers and Frigates, Two Guided Missile Destroyers, and two Ticonderoga Class Aegis Anti Aircraft Cruisers.

It's the closest thing to the death star.

But I still love these CVBG's :p
Don't get me wrong, I love the US's Navy: its power, its superiority; but I HATE IT when THEY USE IT. I just love the ships and what they can do with it :p

Not really after the "greatest american presidents"... just some presidents cause they ran out of names.

Maybe about 20 times a Nimitz? Hahahaha! ;p

Hmm, you're right. Maybe it's after the Presidents tha the incumbent president liked. ;p Why else would Hull 77 be called George H.W. Bush? :rofl:
