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.

    And almost all tied up and/or undergoing maintenance? Looks and sounds as if American Naval Power is sunk to the bottom of the sea.

      Might be a different reason, to give them all a upgrade at the very same time – a much more worrisome for things to come…

    These ships were built to feed the military industrial complex, not for protecting USA
