The single most important contributor to the U.S.’s military dominance is the country’s powerful navy, which gives America the ability to project hard power just about anywhere in the world.
And this ability owes a lot to the Navy’s unparalleled fleet of aircraft carriers.
The U.S. has 19 carriers. The rest of the world has only 12 aircraft carriers combined. The U.S. carriers are also larger and more technically advanced than any other country’s.
