This Timelapse Shows How To Resupply An Aircraft Carrier At SeaRaphael Orlove10/22/13 1:50pmFiled to: BoatlopnikAircraft CarriersTimelapseMilitary Vehicles102EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink This is the USS Kearsarge. Do you think it has time to stop for a resupply? Hell no, it gets what it needs on the move, and here's how it happens.Basically, another ship pulls up alongside, tethers itself to the Kearsarge (technically not an aircraft carrier, but just an aircraft-carrying amphibious assault ship) by using a friggin' rifle, and airlifts what's needed to the aircraft via helicopter. Liquids like water and gas go through the tether tubes. It sounds simple, and dammit, it looks awesome.
