More than 80 aircraft and helicopters are carried on board and are enable to enhance the military effectiveness of the warship. The “Bush” is also used for the development and testing of advanced weapon systems. On the deck of CVN-77, the first tests with unmanned drones, as the Northrop Grumman X-47B developed and designed for carrier-based operations, has been recently done.
