There's probably less of a difference between Warrior and Nimitz than between Victory and Warrior - Warrior was iron hulled and steam powered.

Difference in material is less of a difference than different in power and design principle.

Uhhh.... what?

The Warrior is basically a sailing ship with an iron hull and steam propulsion. Whereas a Nimitz has absolutely nothing in common with the Victory except they float on water.

Still a disgrace to the scrap the CV-6. That ship of should be in New York as a museum.
