Of course it would require a rebuild. But not of the deck I've already shown you that the electro magic trains in Japan operate fine and oversee
water. ( Reactors are getting smaller and smaller the present requirement for the Electromagnetic launch system is 95 MJ. In many of the sealed new
nuclear reactors that recirculate the water can handle that load.
All I'm saying is there is absolutely no way you could completely rule out the theory. I don't think anyone can predict the future of shipbuilding
there are new advancements every year.
At one point the British canceled some of the F 35 B program in order to order at 35 C's and use EMALS On their new Queen Elizabeth class carriers.
But the technology just wasn't completely ready, so they changed their order back to F 35 bs
I truly feel that F 35 bs will operate off these platforms and when technology catches up they will be able to use the EMALS and the f-35 C's. The
EMALS Can handle much heavier aircraft that could fulfill the tanker requirements.
And come on man we're not talking about a small ship The Japanese helicopter tender destroyer is 750 meters long.
