How much fuel can an aircraft carrier hold?



  1. 0 Votes

    Depends on the size. The CVN-65 Enterprise is the longest carrier in the U.S. Navy at 1,123 feet. It is also the tallest (250 feet) and fastest (30+ nautical miles per hour) carrier in the fleet, and carries 8,500 tons of aviation fuel (12 days flight operations). Older carriers need a lot of space for the huge stores of fuel required to power a ship that size. The USS Kitty Hawk has a fuel capacity of 4,000,000 gallons.
