With the end of the Cold W-ar in the 1990s, the Navy’s massive Aircraft Carriers found themselves patrolling the world’s oceans without an enemy but their ability to project power was needed more than ever.

But no matter how much the technology changes, the carrier’s mission remains the same project power anytime and anywhere.
