Here’s a pop quiz: How many aircraft carriers does the U.S. Navy need to maintain military superiority? Before you answer that question, consider that no other country in the world, including China and Russia, has more than two carriers.

Would five aircraft carriers be enough? How about seven or eight?

The fact is, the U.S. has ten nuclear powered carriers in its fleet, with another scheduled to become operational in a mere two years. However, carriers are incredibly expensive to maintain and top military strategists have raised serious doubts about their vulnerabilities in modern warfare. So, considering all those factors, does it make sense for the Navy to spend $4.7 billion next year to refuel the USS George Washington?
