The addition of large naval ships such as battle ships and aircraft carriers with walkable interiors and fully functional weapons would make ARMA 3 a much better game with more options.

UP voted! Whether navy becomes part of ARMA or not having the *technology* in place (walkable interiors, etc.) would open the same use to the modding community in general. Am I the only one that would like to see ship to ship battle? I don't think so. How about Somali Pirates boarding a civilian freighter and a sniper from a cutter doing over watch while Navy Seals board the ship and try to take it back?
These ideas would be made into reality MUCH more easily if BI incorporated the basic structures into the vanilla code.
Even if it was a DLC... "ARMA 3: Naval Expansion", I'd buy it in a heart beat and I know others would as well.
There is already a script for this, you can sit on top of moving destroyers, HEMTTs, inside flying helicopters, land on moving aircraft carriers / destroyers, etc.. The only real problem is that BIS doesn't want to add that.
Just want to point out it is not the US army alone...
NATO consists of more than just the US Army, the other American armed forces also make up the US NATO contribution. However you must also consider that there are other countries like Britain, France, Spain, etc.
On the note of warships I believe that because they exist in the real world they should exist in the game, in the same way that because people in real life people can jump they should add jumping to the game in some form. I think as a simulation it should accurately simulate the battlefield.
However on a note of it being a game, which to all intents and purposes it still is, I think that the development time required to make such a battleship may remove crucial developers who should be fixing much bigger issues such as the entire physics system or the poor system performance.
So overall, I think for the simulation we should have them, but for the game we should wait until the game is in a playable state...
