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.

      US carriers staying in port is good.
      I started following South Front after Russia moved in to support Syria in late 2015.
      Was concerned about potential conflicts in area.
      I think Putin has played his cards well.
      Empire and ISUS influence are declining in Syria.
      SAA was out matched but are making gains.
