53 years from now, the world is celebrating the end of the six year long WWIII. The constant melting of the ice sheets gave way to sea combat like never before imagined. Nations have an arms race for battleships for the fight for ice caps witch were up for grabs after the UN decided to start a settlement in Antarctica in 2056. Many southern nations protested on NATO's involvement of lands that were out of their legal reach. This stirred a conflict that took place above 5 miles of water. Ships had to serve as mobile bases as supplies were hard to reach to combat zones. This called for faster, stronger and more stealthy ships. Hundreds of vessels were sunk in the battle until treaties were arranged.
The war is over, the United states' relationship with the enemy alliances is still at an unease. To be prepared for any other conflicts of the same sort, the Navy goes to the drawing board and comes up with this 8.9 Billion dollar baby. It is a multipurpose ship, mostly an aircraft carrier that can accomplish 100 knots. It also has an advances system of elevators and hangers that house the most advanced drones under deck. One take off, and one landing runway allow quick deployment. The ship accomplishes such high speed because of a nuclear power core under the landing runway. The ship will serve for another 30 years patrolling the American colonies near Antarctica.
