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.

      they dont seem to go that fast

      • Kennethllindsy

        At 35 knots they can travel pretty fast to an operations area.

      Not ever needed in the Persian Gulf as there are plenty of US Allied bases in the region with thousands of aircraft in place.

      • Thegr8rambino

        Thats thousands of aircraft too many lmao

          Like it matters how many aircraft/bombers/drones/etc are in ANY particular area. If we wanna reach out and touch someone, all our fleets leaving most of the major conflict zones on the planet does is make them LESS secure, not more so (as if that will suddenly satisfy generations of Islamic radicals who’ve been blowing sh-t up over the very issue for decades! lmfao)

            Oh really? By that logic our 25 years of bombing the Middle East should make it the safest region on earth then LOL you are such an idiot

    Oh no!! What are you Mid-East crazies in all 10 zillion paramilitary orgs (state AND non-state) going to complain about now???? If there aren’t US carriers anywhere close by, you don’t have any more good reasons to be the nutjobs with Sarin, religously-ignorant and dangerous militants, and untold numbers of lunatics looking for their caliphate going to use as a flag for war against the world now??? I mean, since I was a kid in the 80s, 99.9% of all those totally f–king crazy extremist paramilitary Muslim organizaitons/countries/divided nations/and militaristic whackoids only had ONE real reason to blow up random airliners, behead randoms, etc!! It was about the evil “US empire invading their oh-so-peaceful-Muslim lands!!!” …but now if you guys lose your sh-t and go crazy, you’ll just be exposed for what you’ve always been, especially in the backyards of the Ansar al-Sharias, Muslim Brotherhoods, Daesh sub-groups, and Caliphate-seeking state actors! LOL….Remember? Just watch ANY MOVIE EVER MADE ABOUT TERRORIST BAD GUYS THROUGHOUT THE 90s in HOLLYWOOD!
    President would always say in those movies: “What do you want? Why are you doing this? Please let those hostages go!”
    ….And the Muslim militant nutjobs would ALWAYS SAY (in every movie/TV show, like Executive Decision, Homeland, etc) “We will only not kill everyone if the US removes its forces from all Muslim lands and remove all aircraft carriers out of our seas!” LMAO…..Hell, even the DPRK’s only demand when taking POTUS hostage in Olympus Has Fallen was for “the 7th fleet to leave the waters of Korea!”
    …..wow….The world we live in
