Today, little has changed. The huge and modern US naval forces are conducting military operations in different parts of the planet, feeling at the same time in complete safety. The flagships of the US Navy became aircraft carriers, which are also the core of the aircraft carrier groups. Having been armed with under a hundred combat aircraft, one such group surpasses the fleets of many countries in its strike power.
In addition to the United States, aircraft carrier ships are part of the naval forces of Japan, Britain, Spain, Brazil, Italy, France, China and Russia. Some of these countries refuse to maintain such huge ships (for example, Brazil, Italy and Spain). Others, on the contrary, intend to build new aircraft carriers.
