The article presents facts about aircraft carriers. The two types of fixed-wing aircraft for carrier use include the Conventional Take- Off and Landing (Ctol) and Short Take-Offm Vertical Landing (Stovl). Angled flight decks allow for more catapult installations and for simultaneous landings. The Royal Navy of Great Britain has the largest Stovl carriers, which carry a typical air group of some 24 aircraft. Most Ctol ships are nuclear powered while the majority of Stovl ships are powered by gas turbines.
