The CVNF (I know weird- New GB designation - Nuclear Fleet Carrier)
After spending 20 years with the Invincible Class the RN managed to get approval from the Mod to develop a new Class of Carrier to replace them with designs submitted in 1998. After many design changes, VT came up with the below design. Working closely with NG the CVNF were developed. Built in the UK they were the largest war ship ever constructed in Europe weighing in at 80,000 long tonnes.
Designed to operate as a fleet carrier with the following compliment:
18 Super Hornets
3 HH-60H Sea Hawk
The first of the Class Queen Elizabeth is due to join the fleet in 2012 with Prince of
Wales due to join in 2014.
