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.

    The US built its massive fleets to control global trade. That’s why in the past they patrolled the global trade choke points, such as the Suez canal, the Straits of Malacca and the Persian Gulf.
    So why isn’t the US using its ships for the purpose they were built?

    The US is bankrupt and cannot afford to deploy its navy.
