Not nuclear powered BAD purchase decision

OLD tech - In an era of major atmospheric fossil fuel damage this is a gross polluting oil burner, 8K to 10K miles max., seriously limited range. 100 years estimated life span of burning oil to move this hulk...

It has no nuclear engines - so major FAIL as can not be built as ALL electric - bad design means major rust problems corroded steam pipes overtime and endless C20th, C19th, C18th valves to repair and replace.

It can't even protect itself from incoming attack, it needs constant destroyer support to down incoming missiles et al and keep surrounding air theatre free.

Compared to the CVN78 Ford class self defence systems and unlimited range, let alone ALL electric systems, this is a C20th UK Ford Anglia to the USA's Star Wars Ford Class carrier CVN78 Death Star. Underwhelmed despite propoganda.

Rubbish, stop using self censoring UK google and use DuckDuckGop for example. There are loads of websites providing detailed info on tactical rifles etc., not least of which is the manufacturer's own.
