2.One US aircraft carrier has a more powerful air force than 70% of all countries.

 

3.French named one of their aircraft carriers after Ferdinand Foch, who interestingly said, “Airplanes are interesting toys, but of no military value”.

 

4. Brazil once tried to sell an aircraft carrier on eBay

Interesting fact's, Though to clarrify the first fact. The I-400 I wouldnt call a quick dive. It's dive time was almost double that of US fleet submarines of the time thus allowing plenty of time for an aerial target to destroy it if spotted and the planes took time to launch, 15 minutes without the pontoons fitted, 45 minutes with the pontoons.
