The Hastings Class Aircraft Carrier is by far the largest and most advanced Aircraft Carrier serving in the Tarakian Navy. All information listed is for Flight IA and II Carriers.
The Hastings Class Aircraft Carrier is an 1,106 foot design built with some of the most advanced components, including radar wave absorbing materials, Electromagnetic Assisted Launch System(EMALS) which safely accelerates the aircraft to speed and Multi-Mission Payload Module System(MMPMS) thats just to name a few.
The Hastings Class was layed down at General Dynamics Naval Systems-Rockport Facility and was constructed from using Tungsten Cobalt Alloy instead of Aluminium Titanium Iridium, with Spectra over specific parts of the Hull.
Flight Deck Construction
The Flight Deck uses Asphalt sealed with a Rubberized coating to protect it from cracks, The Flight Deck also has 4 EMALS Catapults which are connected to a linear induction motor, it drastically freed up more space and was also lighter than a steam catapult that took up more space. Among the 4 Catapults are 4 Blast delfectors that come up to protect the next aircraft in line.
The Hastings Class has Three Large Bays capable of storing 30 aircraft per each bay, One Small Bay capable of storing 5 to 10 Helicopters and One Munitions Bay capable of storing 60,000-80,000 pounds of ordinance(ranging from missiles to bombs), There is also two Fuel Tanks below the Hanger Bay that are stored with JP-5 Fuels for the Aircraft.
Flight I(1) Carriers were built with the Arcon A9N PWR Nuclear Fission Reactors and represented the pinnacle of the Fission Reactors in use by the Tarakian Navy. Flight IA(1A) Carriers are built with the new Arcon Advanced Naval Systems PWFR FuS1NE(Fusion 1 Naval Enhanced) Reactor which is more safer than the fission reactors previously used.
