Three-Carrier Strike Force Exercise to commence in Western Pacific

(That's a giant headline because it's a significant sign of mobilization.)

http://www.c7f.navy.mil/Media/News/Disp ... n-pacific/

Quote:
YOKOSUKA -- The USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), USS Nimitz (CVN 68), and USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) strike groups will commence a three-carrier strike force exercise in the Western Pacific, Nov 11-14.

Units assigned to the strike force will conduct coordinated operations in international waters in order to demonstrate the U.S. Navy's unique capability to operate multiple carrier strike groups as a coordinated strike force effort.

"It is a rare opportunity to train with two aircraft carriers together, and even rarer to be able to train with three," said U.S. Pacific Fleet Commander, Adm. Scott Swift. "Multiple carrier strike force operations are very complex, and this exercise in the Western Pacific is a strong testament to the U.S. Pacific Fleet's unique ability and ironclad commitment to the continued security and stability of the region."

While at sea, the strike force plans to conduct air defense drills, sea surveillance, replenishments at sea, defensive air combat training, close-in coordinated maneuvers, and other training.This is the first time that three carrier strike groups have operated together in the Western Pacific since exercises Valiant Shield 2006 and 2007 off the coast of Guam. Both exercises focused on the ability to rapidly bring together forces from three strike groups in response to any regional situation. Ronald Reagan took part in VS 2006 and Nimitz took part in VS 2007. More recently, U.S. Navy aircraft carriers have conducted dual carrier strike group operations in the Western Pacific including in the South China Sea, East China Sea and Philippine Sea. These opportunities typically occur when strike groups deployed to the 7th Fleet area of operations from the West Coast of the United States are joined with the forward deployed carrier strike group from Japan.

For more than 70 years, the U.S. Pacific Fleet has been a persistent and stabilizing presence conducting operations throughout the region. The Fleet is just as committed to maintaining those security commitments for the next 70 years.



100,000 toneladas de ruido de sables. :roll:

The 101,400 ton USS Ronald Reagan is based in Japan. The 100,020 ton USS Nimitz's home port is on the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington state. The 104,600 ton USS Theodore Roosevelt's home port is San Diego, CA.

A carrier strike group actually consists of a (one) carrier, and a huge assortment of supporting warships. So what this actually is...is three strike groups, which the article pretty much confirms right up front. Wow a auarter of out strike groups in one place...go figure.

But...its Donald's typical way of dealing with anybody who won't drop to their knees and suck his little Donald immediately as demanded. He will send in 50 lawyers to buttfuck the caterer and his storefront attorney, and 75blawyers to buttfuck the family business piano guy who wants the contracted amount, not Donald's 30% discount.

Donald is the wicked prince of overkill.

Quote:
.......Each US aircraft carrier holds more than 60 aircraft, including F/A-18 fighter jets, airborne early warning and control aircraft and helicopters for anti-submarine warfare.

The ships accompanying the carriers included destroyers and cruisers equipped with the Aegis anti-ballistic missile system as well as Tomahawk cruise missiles. US attack submarines typically accompany US aircraft carrier strike groups, but the Navy usually keeps their specific locations secret.........

and what percentage of the populace are cheering this mobilization believing Der ubergroppenfuhrer will kick their (fill-in-the-blank group/nation/religion) ass? Except that they won't. Wars between states can be fought with air superiority but wars are not won with air superiority alone.

Minimum of forty percent or so. Probably more considering the intellectually lazy-ass nature of the American people.

Sadly, I cannot argue.

War economy will kick the poorest most vulnerable peoples asses in America as well as the middleclass by shifting budget priorities and spending away from human needs and towards waste and destruction.
