Wow you make it seem like it should be pretty easy to sink a carrier....so how many have been in sunk in say the last 50 years??
How could you sink an aircraft carrier?
As one USN torpedo pilot stated, "if you wanna fill the ship with air, you bomb it; if you wanna fill it with water...you torpedo it!"
CHINA PROGRAM TOUTS ITS ABILITY TO SINK US AIRCRAFT CARRIERS
Kind of a trick question wasn't it, well heres a few sunk a little longer than 50 years ago, but you know weapons have come a long way since then.
