Good article imo. I especially liked this part:
The airfield completely and massively dwarfs the ship. The aircraft carrier would fit comfortably on to one of the aircraft parking areas. And yet this ship is capable of taking and operating around 70 aircraft. Nearly twice as many aircraft are based in a fraction of the space along with fuel, weapons, people, hangars, workshops and communications systems and are still operated effectively and safely. Clearly, simply downsizing or compressing land-based operations cannot do this. The solution is a totally different way of operating very different combat aircraft and these differences, which lead to a totally different ethos, lie at the heart of naval aviation.
The article is too long to post here, browse to the source instead to read it:
