well, that will take a few years. Build the ship, equip it with qualified crew and pilots, buy a bunch of F35s and learn to safely operate those at sea. That little ego-rattling flag waving exercise is not so easily done. I like the notion of duplicating WW2 jeep carriers- small vessels with small numbers of aircraft. More survivable from chinese anti-ship weapons.

The type of propulsion for the ship would be my initial wonder. Also view both fleet type and jeep type have – relative - strengths and weakness in comparison to each type. Beside the rivalry concerns…, I view a relative strength of 2 jeep like vs. 1 fleet like being able to sub hunt more areas….
same here... In my opinion it will be a Token Ship hanging round with ships from Friendly countries to protect it!
Pilot and ship crew training (and F-35 building) will be completed well before the ship. Staffing and onboard hardware are the easy part. Procuring the ship itself is the hard part.
