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.

    Appears that Carrier strike groups are moving away from N Korea.
    I guess chubby Kim scared them off.
    So much for “MSM propaganda news and threats”.
    This is good news for Seoul.

      Its so weird and hilarious that the Carl Vinson is nowhere near norko when trump said he was sending an armada. Like wtf?? Did the admiral of the fleet not get the memo or was like “fuck this!”? Haha

    All quiet. The Vinson is still in the Indian Ocean.
