Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, but that only works in battles between matched actors ie US vs china or asymmetric war between small stateless terrorist unit vs state actor.

for a small state to take out a capital ship of a large armed-to-the-teeth-and-spoiling-for-a-fight nation would be pretty suicidal. If Iran sank the Kitty Hawk or similar carrier, Tehran would be replaced by a smoking hole in the ground. However vulnerable, Iran has to leave capital ships alone.
