I very much doubt it. The Argentineans had trouble launching their carrier strike because they had a large WOD requirement. The RN did not put aircraft to sea on carriers that could not be launched with more than the WOD the ship could generate itself. The CVA-01’s slightly angled flight deck was also excellent for recovery in pitching deck situations because the arrestor gear was very close to the CG of the ship meaning there was little vertical movement when pitching. Which is what leads to large numbers of bolters during pitching deck recovery.uk 75 said:As I understand it in the South Atlantic CVA 01 would have found it quite difficult to fly off and land Phantoms and Bucs.
Mike Tyson is a large target but it’s pretty hard to get close enough to hit him and still stay conscious.uk 75 said:She would also have been a large target.
