  Heh heh!
  But one could _equally_ ask why the RL US bothers putting out anything
but Supercarriers!
  Obviously one must not have a navy of just carriers, even though
aircraft would certainly play a major role in any major battle. But
long-term long-range support and patrol and other tasks like that will
always need Patrol Boats, Destroyers, Cruisers and other ships, tasks that
you don't want to commit your expensive, huge, and maintenance intensive
carriers to!
