The $2.8 billion dollar Virginia-Class Submarine is the very definition of versatile. Due to the large change to the class over the years, and the variety of missions they engage in, there is no set size, speed, or armaments for the submarine, but all of them are kitted out with a healthy supply of BGM-109 Tomahawk Missiles and RGM-84 Harpoons that can be fired from vertical launch systems or torpedo tubes.
The $13 billion dollar Gerald R. Ford Class are the next generation of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers for the US Navy, to replace the current carriers, the Nimitz-class. The first was commissioned in 2017, with more gradually being built over the coming couple of decades until the replacement of 10 Nimitz-class carriers is complete. In size, they are similar to the ships they are replacing, but where they differ greatly is in the level of technology they bring to bear. The most notable of these is the electromagnetic aircraft launch system which has replaced the conventional steam piston launch system, but it also has a whole host of other improved design features to reduce operating costs, and increase automation. This has led to a reduced complement of just 2,600 sailors, compared to the Nimitz’ 3,300, as well as numerous operational improvements.
