So, does somebody have some nice pics of this ship?
I loved to see Queen Mary II when it arrived on our shores and waited for more than 3 hours to see it leave.
I don't think I will do that for this NimitZ thingy. Not just because it is American!

I never said it is the biggest ship, I just said it is a floating city. The ULCC's are the biggest ships ever made, largest one being 450+ meters. But then none of these carry four squadrons of fighters and god knows how many nukes. A carrier battle group with its entire flotilla of support ships, destroyers, frigates and submarines is the ultimate show of power.

People with guns do
But my comment was in a different context, out of scope of this thread and forum.
