A carrier strike group (CSG) is an operational formation of the United States Navy. It is centered on an aircraft carrier and a carrier air wing (CVW) of 65 to 70 aircrafts. It’s composed of roughly 7,500 personnel, an aircraft carrier, at least one cruiser, a destroyer squadron of at least two destroyers and/or frigates. A carrier strike group also, on occasion, includes submarines, attached logistics ships and a supply ship. Carrier strike groups comprise a principal element of U.S. power projection over the world’s oceans.

    Not of any use for rest of the world,yes Russians and Chinese may be interested as they have to sink these monsters,haha

  • i read one estimate of a 2 day survival rate for the us navy if war breaks out. this is due to the dong-feng, pantsir, and sunburn missiles as well as the numerous chinese and russian attack subs most of which run silently on electric motors.

      Carriers are so second world war. The victors of the last tend refight it in the next. Bit dangerous given the Russians, Chinese, iranians have gone asymmetrical. Have they figured out russian jamming yet?
