Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

Regarding the carriers designation

U.S.S. Enterprise was planned as CVA, launched as CVAN-65 (CVA means attack carrier, the N for nuclear powered was added in '59 while the ship was build), in '75 the CVA and CVS (Anti submarine warfare carrier) were reclassified as CV (carrier) with Enterprise, Nimitz and Eisenhower of course keeping the N.

[edit, clarified one point]
