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.

    shitting in their pants to go out to sea is a very good explanation why. And then they speak of blockading Russias fleet moronic idiots.

    Does anyone know when the last time the US had a carrier group in the Persian Gulf? I may have missed something but it seems like a long time.

      They left the Persian Gulf the day Russia fired missiles from the Caspian sea into Syria, that was 3 years ago.

      Now, when they can afford it, they loiter in the Arabian sea, which they see as safer than the Persian Gulf.

        Thanks. Didn’t realize it was so long ago.

  • What spooked the USS Donald Cook so much in the Black Sea?

      Enough of the advertising for Voltaire net.
      I used to read it, but Thierry mostly writes fiction these days.

      If that’s you Thierry maybe you should concentrate on facts, and shorten the stories you are too verbose.

      • Sinbad. Sin and bad, oui… Non, c’est pas moi. Why don’t you go sailing, or something? So, what did cause the “warships” (ha ha haaaa) to well, die, basically?
