No, not really. This is for "wet" navy contrasts and comparisons. Much like the armoured vehicle thread where tanks couldn't be compared to 'video game' mechas, and where they had seperate threads, it is impossible to compare a death star to a destroyer. Kinda like trying to compare a dreadnaught to a trireme. If you want an FT space navy thread, then make one.

Don't use superlatives in NS. It's not a good idea, especially if your design is pretty bad.

BTW, the Nimitz can hold roughly 85 aircraft. It can only send a fraction of them out at one time.

Increasing the ship's size by three-four isn't going to make it capable of holding a thousand aircraft; this is physically impossible. Additionally, it will only slightly increase the amount of planes you'll be capable of operating at the same time, which means you gain a massive liability for virtually no gain.

1: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: sigging for awesome

2: On a more serious note, I do not have pictures or a full write up for my primary ship (or flagship), so rather than give you a picture of the Battleship Bismarck and quickly typed up notes, I'll give you what I do have. Of course, there were issues with the term "primary".

The most numerous vessel in our navy is the Morgawr Class Frigate...
Carrier Escort, Anti-Submarine Warfare, Littoral Warfare (Frigate. Armed with 1 20mm Autocannon, 2 Torpedo Launchers, 1 VL-1.)
60 of such vessels are in service.

For capital scale ships we have...
Intrepid Class Carrier—Fleet Carrier (Nuclear Fleet Carrier. Armed with 2 VL-1s. Fighter Complement 80+Helicopters.) 3 are in service and they are, tIntrepid, Endeavor, Enterprise

Hound of Cullann Class Dreadnought—Ship Killer, Coastal Bombardment (BBX Battleship. Armed with 4 300mm Railguns [two turrets in pairs], 12 Modified M1 SAM Launchers (48 cells) 2 VL-1s, 12 CRGPSGM Launchers (48 cells), 40 CRWGM Launchers (160 cells), 18 Torpedo Launchers.) 1 in Service: Hound of Cullann

and the Indomitable Wrath class, details of which are unknown (I haven't written them up). The VL-1s are LASER weapons, yes they're not MT, no I don't play MT, this is PMT.

It is so powerful we named it after our nation. That picture was HS Haydn in 1944, when we regained our colonies Java and Borneo from the Japanese. That picture of it was when it was patrolling in the Java Sea. It is still in use today in the Imperial Haydanian Navy, but much more upgraded guns, weapons etc.

There is no "the arsenal ship." Arsenal ships are a concept for a classification of a ship. What you've said is roughly equivalent to saying "the aircraft carrier."

I think you meant to say the Zumwalt-class destroyer.

While our Aircraft Carriers, Cruisers, Destroyers and Frigates are indeed the eyes, ears and fist of the fleet, the true "backbone" is our replenishment and combat support ships because no warship, however marvelous the design, can accomplish its mission without ammunition, food or fuel.
