"That's the point, actually. You can't measure the strength of our navy by how many ships we have, since the modern navy focuses on having relatively few, expensive, powerful ships compared to the past. "

It's not the point.

To support that one ship, there are about 30-40 other ships.....from tanker ships, supply ships, destroyers, missile launchers, submarine chasers, light cruisers, heavy cruisers, .......

In WW1, you had 'fleets' of battleships. Now , you have as many ships in support of that one big ship you really need to defend from all sorts of threats.

You just don'[t have five or seven big aircraft carriers.

You have five or seven 'battle groups'.
