ministry of fiance might realize small carrier programme - since 30kt LHD scales down to 8Kt LST , then 100kt CNv can be scaled down to 30+kt universal light carrier/LDH
Wait a moment, that would be IDEAL with STOVL!
In any case, they are not rushing with big displacement ships by now. I agree, there is no place for megalomania when you struggle building frigates. Maybe in the period 2020-2025 we will see bigger projects getting official, if construction of smaller vessels gets to speed, by now this is what we have... many fancy scale models and big talking but only projects below 10 kT
