    I would be genuinely frightened to be a sailor on that deck and not tied down to anything. Maybe that's cause I haven't been on a 45,000+ ton, 110-foot wide behemoth. :p

    You maybe didn't forget them, but you did miss them out, as I said. I'm sure you could have cut the last long-winded sentence, which just repeats the previous one, and simply say, 'the CVFs also have...

    Those figures are obviously simplistic. Those individual 75,000 bombers (a lot of them being -17s, -24-26s) obviously don't have the payload of modern bombers. Modern bombers can also use...

    What, weak points on a certain ship? Don't say that, that'll upset most of this forum. :p

    Your guess is not really the same as an authoritative answer, no offence. The simple fact is, there's not enough energy released to really destroy a city in a feasible number of devices, even with...
