    Looks like it was going to slow for takeoff.

    I think thats putting it mildly. Reports say some dick forgot to take the engine cover of, which got sucked into the main jet intake. Not being designed to burn tarpaulin as fuel, this seriously crippled the engine.

    If you guys would just use a "real" aircraft carrier and just blast that critter off the deck stuff like that would not happen. There ain't supposed to be a ski jump on an aircraft carrier.

    We had a much better one, the Harrier Jump jet, it needed a runway slightly smaller than its shadow at noon. But it got obsolete.

    The British Navy sure kicked ass during WW2 and saved the usa from having to fight two fronts on the water

    The Nazi Warship the Karlsruhe, the british Navy pummeled it...wounded it tried to outrun the brits and was sunk by a british submarine and it won the sea war....ALL Hail our only true Friends that we could always depend on....biden may screw that relationship up if we dont get rid of his ass

    BTW the Nazi Karlsruhe was the biggest ship of any navy it was a monster in size far bigger than the biggest brit or usa ship at the time

    Bismark?

    What was the Nazi ship that could launch a light plane? Plane was for reconnaissance Im pretty sure. And I think they launched it kind of like a slingshot from top of ship. When I try to find it all I get is Graf Zeppelin stuff.

    I think it was the Bismarck class of battleships.

    And we have real aircraft carriers. BTW: I thought this was suppose to be a jump jet, like in vertical lift off.
