In a real, heavy conflict, all large ships,, especially a/c carriers will be vaporized down to the hull line before they can do much damage to the
other guy. If you've noticed, the days of the supremacy of the sea enabled by battleships and carriers of the old wars are done. Today, munitions
move through the air, launched from the ground, air and even space.
A carrier is only viable when the entire local sky is owned by the captain, and that is impossible in these days of a variety of missiles. Even then
he can't shoot down a simple blob of kinetic steel that screams down from a space platform at several thousand miles per hour and punches through his
ship like butter.
So a/c carriers are nice for "clean-up" work, small conflicts, but not real wars.
