World Aircraft Carriers – Who win??

 

Recently the world are very unstable. War here war there, some for reason, some for no reason. And Malaysia also act to strengthen some war muscle. With MYR 6billion to build 6 patrol vessels (source).

But I think during war time, aircraft carrier is still the Big Guy to show the country’s war muscle.

So let’s have a look around of what other country’s aircraft carriers looks like..

As always, Malaysia have enormous creativity and funds even they claimed to be very poor and have possibility to be bankrupt. Instead of building an aircraft carrier that might incur future expenses on buying more overpriced aircraft, I think, they might want to build an ultimate one – the Ultimate MotherShip!!
