The massive carrier which was named in honour of former President Gerald R. Ford has an all new and advanced weapons elevators connecting it with the flight deck.

The USS Gerald R. Ford also comes equipped with a number of Short-range anti-aircraft missiles called Sea Sparrows. Oh and also the USS Gerald bathrooms do not have urinals.
