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.

    What does four month selected restricted availability mean?

      “Selected Restricted Availability (SRA): Navy ships go through regular periods of maintenance, repairs and upgrades, known as Selected Restricted Availability. Typically ships in SRA are unavailable unless extreme conditions warrant. Work includes tank preservation, propulsion and ship system repairs and limited enhancements to various hull, mechanical and electrical systems.”
