5 Reasons US Aircraft Carriers are Nearly Impossible to Sink



1. large-deck carriers fast and resilient
2. carrier defenses formidable
3. carries do not operate alone
4. Navy tactics maximize survivability
5. new technology bolstering carrier defense

美國航空母艦幾乎不可能被擊沉的5個原因:
1. 大型甲板航空母艦行動迅速而有彈性
2. 航母的防御力量非常強大
3. 航母不是單獨行動的
4. 海軍的戰術使航母生存能力最大化
5. 新技術加強了航母的防御能力

Aircraft carriers are symbols of American military might, and, recently, a Chinese military professor caused a stir by calling for China to sink two of them to crush America’s resolve.

航空母艦是美國軍事實力的象征,最近一名中國軍事方面的教授呼吁中國擊沉兩艘美國航母以瓦解美國的決心的事件引起轟動。

“It wouldn’t be impossible to hit an aircraft carrier, but unless they hit it with a nuke, an aircraft carrier should be able to take on substantial damage,” said retired Capt. Talbot Manvel, who previously served as an aircraft engineer and was involved in the design of the new Ford-class carriers.

“擊中航空母艦并非不可能,但除非用核彈擊中它,航空母艦應該可以承受重大的損害?!蓖诵莸乃柌┨芈S爾上尉說,他之前作為一名航空工程師參與了新福特級航母的設計工作。
