Welcome back to the our channel for a feature on the giant aircraft carriers in the US military and how crew members prepare for multiple jet takeoffs in a single day. The word "boatswain" should be pronounced "bosun". Aircraft cruisers, also known as aviation cruisers, cruiser-carriers, flight deck cruisers, and hybrid battleship-carriers, which combine the characteristics of aircraft carriers and surface warfare ships, because they primarily operated helicopters or floatplanes and did not act as a floating airbase. Examples include the British Tiger-class cruisers, Japanese Hyūga-class helicopter destroyers, French cruiser Jeanne d'Arc, Soviet Moskva-class helicopter carriers, and Italian Andrea Doria-class cruisers. Vessels which meet the criteria of an aircraft carrier but are named as cruisers (or destroyers, etc.) for political or treaty reasons such as the Russian Kuznetsov-class aircraft carriers or British Invincible-class aircraft carriers are included however.
