Modern carriers HMS HermesMore modern uses of aircraft carriers include the Falklands War, where the United Kingdom was able to win a conflict 8,000 miles (13,000 km) from home in large part due to the use of the full size carrier HMS Hermes and the smaller HMS Invincible. The Falklands showed the value of a VSTOL aircraft—the Hawker-Siddeley Harrier (the RN Sea Harrier and press-ganged RAF Harriers) in defending the fleet and assault force from shore based aircraft and for attacking the enemy. Helicopters from the carriers were used to deploy troops and pick up the wounded.The US has also made use of carriers in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and to protect its interests in the Pacific. Most recently, the 2003 invasion of Iraq featured US aircraft carriers as the primary base of US air power. Even without the ability to place significant numbers of aircraft in Middle Eastern airbases, the United States was capable of carrying out significant air attacks from carrier-based squadrons.In the early 21st century, worldwide aircraft carriers were capable of carrying about 1250 aircraft. US carriers accounted for over 1000 of these; the second leading country, the United Kingdom fielded over 50 aircraft. The United Kingdom and France are both undergoing a major expansion in carrier capability (with a common ship class), but the United States will still maintain a very large lead.
A dedicated carrier has to be defended by other ships. Even in WW2 - where you couldn't jump in and get close personal - carriers were protected by battelships, cruisers, frigates & destroyers.While part of hte battlegroup could be split to do a differnt task, the carrier was never left without ample defenses.
That is a big negative on the Construction time! If that was the case then we could asume that the more modern ships in FS2 take evn more to complete then theyr predecesors which have rouled out any bugs and stuff like that making them acustomed to the problems of designs and the solutions. Thus a hecate would take like what 4 years on the minimum?? No that would make it imposible for the GTVA to build both the Hatsheepsut and the Hecate in at least 2 exemplaries by the time the second shivan incurshion takes place. Remember they were introduced into srvice shortly after the start of the war. And you would imagine them having more then 2 of each if they really want to phase out the Orion.
Yeah but that would still be too much construction time! i mean they could build like what 3 or 4 corvettes bi the time they finish one destroyer? Then we weould actualy have to see like what for every destroyer in the game 3 pr 4 time that amount of corvettes. And we dont see that!
15 Sobeks, 5 Hatshepsuts.http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Freespace_2_Vasudan_Ship_Database#GVC_Khevtoth
umm and how many Sobeks and Hatsheepsut's???? I imagine them as havin a lot more then that! Since there was an old thread somewhere that said something like 26 destroyers in total in the entire GTVA(terrans=13,vasudans=13 ) !

Since there was an old thread somewhere that said something like 26 destroyers in total in the entire GTVA(terrans=13,vasudans=13 ) !We know that there are 26 Battlegroups in the GTVA from the Hornet tech description, and we know that the 3rd and 11th Battle Groups had multiple destroyers (GTD Delecroix, GVD Memphis) so there are more destroyers than 26, or not every battle group has a destroyer (unlikely, why would a fleet without a destroyer, and therefore, without fighters, need Hornets?)
