V-22 Osprey combo-copter hits fresh tech snags

More to Steam than just the pressure

Much more energy in steam than compressed air, steam is stored as very hot water under pressure.

Electric catapults? sci-fi twonk for the labs.

The carriers should be Nuclear powered. Plenty of catapult steam available then. They wouldn't need refuelling every week either.
