Aircraft carrier (2343 words)
Aircraft carriers are generally the largest ships operated by navies; a Nimitz-class carrier powered by two nuclear reactors and four steam turbines is 1092 ft (333 m) long and costs about $5 billion.
Aircraft carriers are generally accompanied by a number of other ships, to provide protection for the relatively unwieldy carrier, to carry supplies, and to provide additional offensive capabilities.
Aircraft carriers played a significant role in World War II, the most notable of which is considered to be the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
