The US building carriers at the rate we do is budget, not tech driven. If this next US budget actually goes through, the rate of carrier construction will be 3 years.
We could probably go a lot faster, but that would be a function of cost and that's not something the US gov and american taxpayer is willing to shoulder the burden for at this time.
