Perhaps it (the high back stern) is a throwback to naval history/tradition:

Matrix Games has announced a new scenario DLC coming with the Brits and their new carrier pairing up with the Indian Navy to take on the Paki's and their Chinese "volunteers".

The YT caption states:

Quote:
After completing the second phase of helicopter flying trials at sea, HMS Queen Elizabeth returns to a sunny Portsmouth, next stop the USA for F-35 flight trials.


That is a sharp looking ship.

I didn't realize that she would have to sail to the US for flight trials....she is more than welcome of course!

And I wonder what the deal is with the robed guy standing at the top of the ski ramp?

I think it comes down to the Spinal Tap idiom: "these go to eleven"



2 bridges are better than 1.

I didn't realize it but Britain's first carrier take off with the F-35 was almost 5 years ago:



They took off though from a US Navy LHD---the USS Wasp.
