Re: Genuine question
I figured out a solution. We have two problems
1) We bought two ships are barely have enough stuff to run one of them
2) the ships are not long enough normal planes to take off from, and cannot be retrofitted with cat and trap for any reasonable cost (for some reason the contract didn't specify a "reasonable cost" when requiring retrofitting as an option..).
The solution is simple. Just dock the two ships together to provide one, longer runway!
Edit: For reference, the combined length would be 560m,
Specification and Dimensions Eurofighter Typhoon
Service ceiling 18290 m (60,000 ft)
Time to 10600m/Mach 1.5 < 2,5 min
Runway length 500 m (take off under 8 seconds)
