So uploader, may I ask you how many aircrafts that it can expropriate.

The image is old and must be done, the basic statistics and intent however are not overly in error. Average scale of an average aircraft lets take the F16 -C which is around 15x10 metres 150sqm, flght deck 390,000sqm, effective directly useable on flight storage ratio roughly probably around 25 percent (for effective recovery rates) unless combat overloading, so call it 97500sqm so thats 650 F16Cs in effective operation.

Roughly.

Effective runway length would allow launch and recovery of strategic bombers, true missile busses,transports and mid air refueling heavies directly by average aviators rather than stol trained naval pilots so these numbers become highly variable.

So you mean is it able to expropriate over 150 aircrafts?

Two Questions. How many aircraft (sqaudrons, air and sea rescues, helicopters and transports) can it hold?

And is there a sort of time share on this thing? I mean, use it for an operation lasting, oooh, three to five months? You know, like them condo's rich people have, but they don't really use it, they like, share it with other people, you know? Or is it like you have one section of the ship for your self, or do you have to share it with other Private Millitary Companys?
