I have a humongous submarine aircraft carrier (dubbed a Kharybdis-class submarine) shaped like a triangular arrowhead. This submarine can launch a wide variety of aircraft from its flight deck such as fighter jets (e.g, the Lockheed Martin F-35B/C Lightning II, Sukhoi Su-33 and Shenyang J-15), military cargo aircraft (e.g CH-53E Super Stallion, Mil Mi-26 and Airbus A400M Atlas) and various multi-mission aircraft. When the vessel is submerged, all aircraft are stored 40 feet below deck via watertight doors and securely held in place by a series of complex locking mechanisms.
Here are the typical measures of a Kharybdis-class submarine:
- Length: 665.7 meters | 2,184.0551 feet
- Beam: 81.68 meters | 267.979 feet
- Flight Deck Width: 153.6 meters | 503.937 feet
- Displacement: 711,339 metric tons
This pretty much what a Kharybdis-class submarine's body plan.
Now, here's the multi-billion dollar question: how many aircraft could this submarine's flight deck carry?
