The lift fan incorporates a vane box which can direct thrust upto 50º aft to provide extra forward thrust during the rolling take off. The shape of the bow and ski jump has been considered and the rounded deck edge is important in smoothing airflow and reducing turbulence. More helicopter spots is more important for a naval landing than additional fighter capability, which would likely be provided by a CVN anyway during a major conflict. A fixed ramp on the port side allows the vehicles to move between the heavy and light vehicle decks. I have no official information but reading between the lines I think it’s bit of column A and a bit of column B; it was too expensive to design the ramp out, and the deck is unsuitable for the heat generated by the F35 for sustained operations so it was never really designed to be turned back into a carrier. The ship is 230.82 metres long overall, with a maximum beam of 32 metres, and a maximum draught of 7.08 metres. The carriers are highly, HIGHLY, unlikely to ever be the target of cuts. that the RN’s next generation of assault ships – if any materialise – will look more like RFA Argus than Ocean or the Invincible class – the logic is that if the RN were to have an Invincible type available as an assault carrier, the temptation for sea-blind politicians to axe the QE class at some point in their service lives in favour of the smaller ship would be all too great. The USN won’t entertain anything that might reduce the number of CVN hulls. I chose the heat because it was already getting a bit long for a comment, but the RAN systematically stripped the fixed wing aviation capabilities out (save the ramp) and never intended to put them back in because they didn’t want or need a carrier, they just can’t crew one, (they could crew the ship I suspect, but not the air wing), a carrier is a competing priority and it isn’t going to happen. With only 23 Seahawk Romeo’s and 6 NH-90’s they are dependant on Army helicopter to flesh out an air group. The Harrier GR1 first entered with the RAF in 1969 a land-based close-support aircraft but various trials were made with the aircraft operating at sea. It would be barking to think that the US Navy pushing the light carrier doesn’t use the ramp to enhance the capabilities of the F35. The Russian, Chinese, Indian, Italian and Thai navies all posses aircraft carriers with ramps. The ‘ski jump’ was first developed in the 1970s to enable the Sea Harrier jet to launch more safely and efficiently and is a feature of the new QEC aircraft carriers, helping launch the latest generation of jets.

HMAS Canberra (D33), was a County-class cruiser launched in 1927 and sunk after the battle of Savo Island in 1942 HMAS Canberra (FFG 02), was an Adelaide class guided missile frigate launched in 1978, decommissioned in 2005, and scuttled as a … To maximise forward thrust, the roll posts are turned off for a few seconds during the STO run and switched back on just as the aircraft leaves the ramp. As this suggests, the Canberra-class landing helicopter docks will greatly enhance Australia’s ability to project power in the massive waters surrounding the country. I believe as soon as the USMC start operating from the QE class, they will see the benefits of the ramp. Even the Spanish never intended the JC1 to be a full blown carrier. I also hope we can increase the f35 rate of procurement as not only to fill the deck of QE or PoW but also to increase numbers for the RAF which is at it’s lowest in terms of numbers. Hello, my name is Dung Tran. Hawker Siddeley Aviation in Kingston, responsible for designing and manufacturing the Harrier (before it was consumed by British Aerospace in 1977), and the MoD explored and verified the concept further using simulation and computer modelling techniques. Tyler Rogaway made a case for the US building smaller carriers back when he was at foxtrotalpha. The site is run on a voluntary basis. But also to increase the total aviation footprint available to the Navy. Any aircraft embarked would be tailored for support of the current mission rather than being the main purpose of the ships, whether they're doing disaster relief, being transported to an AO or going over a hot beach. The entry section is a long ‘cubic’ curve that leads to a second let-down or ‘ellipse’ section where the aircraft is launched. The Harrier had four side-mounted swivelling nozzles used to direct thrust down or aft. The ship is equipped with modern Command and Control and combat systems including a Saab 9LV Mark 4 combat management system. The Spanish most certainly have an eye for embarked F-35Bs, but Australia’s navy, air force and defence bureaucracy have zero interest in it. Another excellent & well researched article. Even a short catapult before the ramp changed the incline would cause too much strain.
