    Great photos ****!

    I posted the below regarding "The Big E" in another forum.

    I'd like to see the next CVN named Enterprise. But I honestly think that LHA-7 will be named Enterprise.

    "The Big E" will make her final deployment in the Spring of 2012. Amazin!!!! No active naval vessel in the World can match this record.None.

    Why such a difference in the displacement among the aircraft carriers of the Nimitz class? They have so many differences in the equipment?

    D-Mitch, I don't know where that website got that info but the USN list all Nimitz class displacing 97,000 tons.

    http://www.navy.mil/navydata/fact_di...0&tid=200&ct=4

    And if the weights are different there have been modifications to each ship over the years. As an example the Nimitz keel was laid in June 1968. That's over 42 years ago.

    Thank you for your answer my friend! I think the same, the differences in displacement is a result of modifications or structural differences like for example about USS Theodore Roosvelt: Roosevelt and those Nimitz-class vessels completed after her have slight structural differences from the earlier carriers (Nimitz and Eisenhower), and improved protection for ordnance storage in her magazines (wikipedia, citation Defense Industry Daily. 19-December-2005)
