    11 carriers, those are 11 American cities scattered around the World. But these carriers and their CBGs are so expensive to maintain...

    It will take at least 50 years before either China, India or Russia matches up to the USN. Then again, it may happen sooner with China.

    Yeah, there is no point speculating like that. We can only speculate based on what's happening today.

    Anyway the point I was making is if we continue as is, even then we will only match USN after 2050 or so. So, that's how far they are.

    With current politicians its impossible but with a leader who has vision for nation rather family can easily match within 2030
