EMALS is having teething problems. Airframes are getting overstressed using EMALS. Also, IAC 2 is not nuclear powered, but wishes to use electric drives which is also a new technology and had teething problems. It is better for these technologies to mature. We have to go slow on IAC 2.Cost is the problem,what I know it was approved way back in the early 2010s.
