Gigantic Aircraft Carrier Footage! The nuclear powered aircraft carriers can stay at sea without refueling for the extraordinary amount of time which is 20-25 years.
However, refueling them is the extremely expensive as well. For example, the Pentagon has spent $678 million for the refueling of the single aircraft carrier that goes by the name of USS George Washington.
Now, we’re not sure if the aircraft carrier in this video is the aforementioned one, but it definitely uses the same process.
It is really the amazing refueling aircraft carrier footage which perfectly showcases this epic proportions of such the operation. You can see various shots that gives us the full rundown.
These type of refueling the aircraft carriers are usually powered by two nuclear reactors. And these reactors power four propellers that deliver 30 knots of a maximum speed.
Each reactor should produce around 550 megawatts. However, maximum speed and the fuel efficiency is only speculation because this information is held top secret.
Nevertheless, the massive ship is crucial for our army and defense so luckily this exercise has to be done every two decades otherwise it would be impossible to perform.
In this video, you can see just how much machinery and how many people are involved in such the process. Enjoy!
