      Wether you were refering to yourself in the third person, or talking about some hypothetical unspecified reader who were to assume your proposition, it doe not make you sound more intelligent. It does not make you sound more sophisticated, well-read, or any such thing either.
      >HAW HAW, ONE WERE TO ASSUME 'TIS AN EVALUATION OR ASSESSMENT OF THE PRRRROPERTIES OF THIS VESSEL.

        When someone says "one assumes" in this sort of context it's intended as a way of talking down to that person without directly calling them a moron, the subtext being "there's an apparently obvious answer for your question, you fricking moron, but I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here to allow you to save face"

              "We can launch with the wind" seems like a good way for the USN to lose and aircraft.
              They can launch crosswind and against the wind, but not with unless it's light.

                I watch a lot of ex-navy pilots on youtube and all of them say the worst thing about a high seas landing at night is the closer rate with the boat isn't high enough and they wish they had a 20kn tailwind.

                Anonymous

                I have never landed on a carrier but i have never heard of anyone wishing for a tailwind, 20 knots of tailwind at that

                Regular aircraft allow maximum 10 knots tailwind before they switch runways

                Tailwind means more relative ground speed, longer landing distance and less chance of being able to take off again if you miss the hooks

                Fun fact: US carriers are faster than the stall speed of many biplanes, meaning that a biplane or loitering drone based on one could not only do a VTOL something like a Po-2 could be towed like a kite.

      Well american and french carriers don't have a ramp because they have stronger arresting wires, but other than that they are the same

      Ramps are for take off, arresting cables are for landing. U.S. carriers don’t have ramps because we can reach flank speeds that can achieve desirable head winds for the jets to achieve lift.

          I think the idea is to land at an angle, so that if you overshoot and fall into the ocean you won't get run over by a 100,000 ton aircraft carrier.

          It is

          The Type 001 is a refurbed Kuz, the Type 002 is a Kuz modification design manufactured wholly by china. You could argue that's where the Kuz carriers stop, but technically the Type 003 is based on the Type 002 but heavily modified to remove the ramp, add catapults, and increase the overall size. Type 004 is expected to be based on the Type 003 but with Nuclear reactors.

    All memes aside. There are 2 that come to mind.

    1. You have some sort of directional radar or sensor you want to be kept pointed out to see. I wouldn't be surprised if the chinks didn't have omnidirectional radar yet.

    2. The shaft on your engine is cracked. And in order to prevent it from straight up breaking, you are running it in reverse so there is less stress on it. I've seen it done on fishing vessels.

    For training purposes it would be good to know what it's capable of. Not sure why otherwise besides backing out of a port perhaps or just tight maneuvers, I imagine those things turn like a bit fat slow b***h so any kind of movement other than straight forward is important.

    It's a crashback to test the shafting and stern seals. Pretty common. Almost every ship does this when pulling out for workups before deployment. Also helps to make sure your secure for sea detail didn't overlook anything.
