USS Gerald R. Ford, world's largest aircraft carrier


Recommended Posts

I thought this was kind of interesting.  The Ford is steered digitally, but it does have a steering wheel as a backup.  It looks like they just went down to the local West Marine for the SS steering wheel blue light special.  Not even an Edson Carbon Elite for $1400!  At a cost of $12.9 billion to build, I guess they had to save some pennies somewhere.  LOL

Edit:  I wonder if they used Seastar hydraulic steering?
