That's a real thing?
Afraid so. While the US Navy continues to build air craft carriers, other navies have been developing methods to counter them.
Iran, China, Russia and India all have arsenals… among other things. Undersea rocket mines , new classes of diesel subs deploying rocket torpedoes, and a variety of missiles. Lasers don't reach under the ocean, either.

Of course it's a real thing.... What was I thinking? It's almost 2015. We have starving ppl being murdered all over the globe. We also have supersonic surfing bombs that take out Supercarriers. Everything's super.
Thanks for the info intrptr.

The problem with Laser Weapon on ships is that it can be disabled with electromagnet warfare.
That's the problem with going all "digital"
Faraday protection won't help because "burn through" is easier to cause than to protect from. I am of course talking about abilities of Superpowers, not small countries that can't defend themselves anyway.
