Navy (173 words)
A navy is a military organisation that primarily operates in sea-based war.
A modern navy typically uses a combination of ships, boats, submarines, and aircraft launched from aircraft carriers.
Merchant navy is a British and Commonwealth term for the civilian seafaring industry, recognizing both the shared hazards of seafaring activity during wartime, as well as the expectation that civilian vessels may be put under various kinds of control by military authorities.
Aircraft carrier - WarWiki - A Wikia wiki (5046 words)
Modern aircraft carriers have a flat-top deck, the flight deck that serves as a take-off and landing area for aircraft.
Carriers steam at speed, for example up to 35 knots (65 km/h), into the wind during take-off in order to increase the apparent wind speed, thereby reducing the speed of the aircraft relative to the ship.
By the late 1930s, aircraft carriers around the world typically carried three types of aircraft: torpedo bombers, also used for conventional bombings and reconnaissance; dive bombers, also used for reconnaissance (in the U.S. Navy, this type of aircraft were known as "scout bombers"); and fighters for fleet defence and bomber escort duties.
