I am fortunate not to live in a country that rather buys ships that kill people than ships that help people.

I think hospital ships still do have a purpose but not for war time. It might be a good idea to have a few ships stationed around the globe to cover different regions and not just having to wait for one of America’s two ships to sail to the location. Could staff it with an international crew. So a humanitarian situation or natural disasters happen the ship close to there could be sent out.

With the retirement of the Enterprise class carriers, it would be interesting if it would be possible to a convert a couple those into hospital ships. Large hanger decks, plenty of storage areas, speed, and plenty if room on the flight deck for additional structures, that could be quite the asset. Just a thought though

Basically what Wendover is trying to say is that in past 50/60 years while there have been a few times when the hospital ships have proven useful, there has never been a time when they from a national defense perspective they have proven crucial. On the other hand there is still the possibility for a multitude of scenarios in which a hospital ship could prove critical for say a future conflict such as for the US, a possible war with China, it's just that the chances of battlefield conditions being opportune enough for the hospital ship not to be immediately destroyed by a power that may choose to abide by the Geneva conventions (which are the kind that the US generally chooses to fight) are few enough not to warrant acquisition of newer more advanced ships, but at the same time significant enough to maintain and purchase relatively cheap oil tankers and fit them to with the proper equipment.

You think an older aircraft carrier being remodeled into a hospital ship be a good idea? They are already large in size and they have massive hangers which could be ideal to be used as hospital rooms. But hey if it is possible it might be an idea for them to be reused.

Oy oldin
TheReal Lifehacks
TheReal Lifehacks

Aircraft carriers aren't really meant to be reused after service They need nuclear technician's which aren't a dime a dozen, the reactors need to be maintained, weapon systems stripped, classified equipment removed And when a nuclear carrier needs to be refueled they have to cut open the ship and it spends almost an entire year doing so

The speed of a ship is expressed in knots, here: 17 kts. Transverse bulkheads are not so much against sloshing, that's more in the domain of longitudinal bulkheads or baffles. Any capsizing due to free surfaces usually happens along the longitudinal axis.

Buy two or three new but 'roughed out' freight hulls from wherever they are cheapest. Have US shipyards offer bids on completing said hulls as planned hospitals ships, i.e. idealised patient flow; modular sections for easy mission reconfiguration, flight decks for air ambulances etc. Put them through a year of sea trials, problem solved. 200 million buys you a lot of hospital.
