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.

      You may be thinking about the french carrier parked near Syria, the Charles de Gaulle. It was in that area last I heard. That man is probably rolling in his grave with his namesake as part of nato. He wasn’t too fond of nato from what I’ve read about him.

        French cowards are misusing de Gaulle´s name as a cover for their treason.
