Since when? At least up until recently our carriers ALWAYS used that missile, and have been complemented in the past decade by rolling airframe missiles.

It's a last resort, but yes, it does. It may not have the capable fire control systems and computers as the missile cruisers, but it's capable of long-range interception to the best of its radar suite's abilities. Why do you not seem to believe our carriers have SAM turrets?

I did not say that. I specifically said sub-orbital BALLISTIC interception. As in, it's designed to intercept ICBMs. Several of our cruisers/destroyers have already been fitted with the missile and have had their radar suites and fire control systems upgraded to control it properly.

Actually, you're right. I was getting my argument with the SM-2/3 mixed up. My mistake!

I believe they have them, but only in an exceedingly limited role. It is typically the duty of the carriers escorts, mainly the cruisers/destroyers. Since people seem to be taking this off-topic and suggesting that a carrier could one-man an entire nation, it's silly to think 2-4 missiles could fend off any air force. It would take two missiles minimum, per standard rules, to address any single aircraft. Let alone an opposing air force.

You edited!

Once again - My brain is tired from taking Phenibut so I apologize for mis-understanding. While the SM-series is capable of hitting ICBMs - no country currently uses ICBM's to attack a carrier. And if it did, it would lead to a nuclear war, since no country (barring China) has even considered putting a conventional warhead on their missiles for that purpose.

I suppose that's true, though they're by no means defenseless. Anything without heavy armor in close range will be chewed up by the Goalkeeper CWIS turrets (no fewer than 3 on all carriers).
