Reducing to 5 CVNs means the United States would have ONE
CVN to provide world wide coverage at any given time. There is a maintenance & training life cycle that CVN and submarines and their crews go through that bring a number of ssets off line at any given time and make them ineligible for tasking. In reality to meet all the current missions and taskings there should between 12 and 14 carriers and between 15 to 20 air wings.
