United States Navy


Surface Combatants | Undersea Fleet

The carrier fleet of the United States Navy separates it from regional rivals by a considerable margin. Leading the flotilla is a collection of ten nuclear-powered angled-deck carriers of the Nimitz-class. These are, however, rooted in Cold War philosophy and technologies to an extent, leading the service to invest mightily in the new Gerald R. Ford-class promising to enhance USN naval capabilities and then some. Only one of these supercarriers is in active service today. Regardless, the carrier force is further backed by a collection of straight-through deck amphibious assault ships which, while optimized for rotorcraft operations, also supports fixed-wing strike aircraft in the the AV-8B and advanced F-35 VTOL types. The attack submarine force is an all-nuclear fleet made up of remnants of the Cold War period (Los Angeles, Ohio, Sea Wolf) with more modern entries had in the up-and-coming Virginia boats - Los Angeles hulls are being retired in growing numbers to make way for these. The guided-missile cruiser force is a relic of the Cold War period as well and the service looks to reinvest in a modern fighting frigate design which is currently lacking in the destroyer-heavy fleet. The confusingly-named Littoral Combat Ship classes Freedom and Independence classes are already entering (or considering) retirement despite commissioning in the mid / late 2000s. The futuristic-looking Zumwalt-class guided-missile destroyer missed its mark, never filfilling the promised potential when 32 hulls were once planned - instead, just three were completed and two are active. Beyond this is a serviceable mine / countermine force, patrol vessels, and the three-masted USS Constitution, the oldest ship afloat, along with support ships used to streamline all manner of naval operations.

NOTES: The Constellation-class is a new planned group of fighting frigates of which 20 hulls are planned, 4 on order, and 1 having entered construction. These CODLAG-driven designs will form a new arm of the USN fleet when commissioned sometime in 2026 and beyond. The Columbia-class ballistic missile submarine class is a planned group of 12 boats intended to succeed the aging Ohio group. Two are on order with one having entered construction. Additional Virginia-class attack submarines are planned as are Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers. Support ships are also in the pipeline to cover second-line roles such as barracks ship, mobile / medical base, and towing-salvage actions.
