    Hahaha Battleship

    Original Wanksta

    Uh, that’s not a carrier, dude.

    Lisa

    That’s the USS Essex (LHD 2) which is an amphibious assault ship, not a carrier.

    Aristoi

    Well nice to see we have all these military experts around.

    tiki god

    Tell me about it Aristoi. At first glance, it’s a “carrier”, but not one in the traditional/name sense. Guess I should try to look at the big pictures a little more before posts, lol. Cool to see that someone even knew the name of the ship too!

    Lisa

    I’m hardly an expert. Google is your friend. And it helps that my husband just happens to be in the US Navy aboard an aircraft carrier.

    Google IS your friend, but what would you google on this? “Bigass ship with a 2 on it?”

    RainOfBlood

    umm.. it has helicopters on it and control towers…..carrier

    jp

    its a helicopter carrier

    billy

    if it was a carrier, it would be the uss lexington cv2, but shes been out of service for a long ass time.

    take it from a guy whos been in the navy for a while…its an LHD.

    lisa is right though. its the essex. good eye lisa.

    BILLY

    ok lisa is right…
    the “bigass ship with the 2 on the side” is the LHD essex.

    the ship on the other side and closest to the pier is the USS Vella Gulf the bigger one in the middle is the USS Donnald Cook…im tempted to say that the smaller ship at teh very end is the USS Leyte Gulf. i dont know…im probably wrong on that count. and as for the sub, your guess is as good as mine.

    tony

    Actually, all the smaller ships are Japanese, including the submarine. The largest one is Kongo class- like the US Arleigh Burke class but with a larger gun mount.
