Critics of U.S. aircraft carriers have been arguing for decades that the survival of the world’s biggest warships will increasingly be at risk in an era of long-range. In recent years, China has typically been identified as the military power most likely to drive US carriers from the sea.
But the US Navy seems much less worried about carrier attacks than observers who lack military credentials and clearances.
One reason the Navy is not alarmed is that it has invested heavily in new technologies aimed at bolstering the defenses of carrier strike groups. It also has changed its tactics for operating near China. But the biggest reason for confidence about the future resides in the difficulties China would face in trying to find and track U.S. carriers in the south china sea.
