U.S.S. ENTERPRISE. CVN 80

U.S.S. ENTERPRISE.

This revered U S Navy name has today been confirmed as that chosen for CVN 80.

No name amongst those used by U S warships has attracted so much emotion over the decades, almost entirely due to the exploits of her two carrier predecessors.

This revered name, as i have referred to Enterprise, may also be the last of these dinosaurs.

CVN 65, Enterprise was the 1st nuke carrier. With 8 reactors.
CVN 80, Enterprise may be the end of the line.

Even the US can no longer afford not just the ships, but much more crucially, their ludicrous running costs and silly money for their more ridiculous planes.

With the US fiscal policy in tatters, refits and maintenance on existing CVN,s in turmoil, the days of vast mobile aerodromes has passed its zenith and will shortly be in rapid decline.

Sound familiar. Sanity will prevail.

Remember the fate that befell the Worlds battleships and their ilk.
So, au revoir to the massive carrier, cos by 2060 they will be history.

CVN 73 George Washinton
CVN 74 John C Stennis
CVN 75 Harry S Truman
will be the next 3 to be paid off, from about 2018.
They are not to be refuelled.

They will precede
CVN 68 Nimitz
CVN 69 Eisenhower
CVN 70 Carl Vinson
CVN 71 Theodore Roosevelt
CVN 72 Abraham Lincoln
due to those 5 older CVN's either having been refuelled, 68, 69, 70,
being refuelled, 71,
to enter imminently, 72.
