3 complete strike groups, if real, means only 1 thing.

Is this report real? If an excercise this is still an unprecedented move.

Really we had 4? 2 in the med 2 in the gulf? Seems like it would get crowded. 

That's cool, thats a bunch of hornets in one area.  Like stepping on a ground nest of hornets

Would that be such a great idea to have that many of our carriers in one area at a time?
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:25:15 AM EDT
Overwhelming force and projection of power.


This is how you do it.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:25:50 AM EDT
If true, that's what... 50 ships?  How many ships are usually in a CSG?

3 groups.

yeah sailors for now but that much firepower tends to involve Soldiers, Airmen, and Marines too.  Maybe not right away but soon enough.

looks like Trump wants to get it on.

I'm surprised we have enough working aircraft for 3 complete air wings
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:27:38 AM EDT
In for confirmation.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:28:42 AM EDT
So whats the gameplan if it actually comes to itshappening.gif? Insanely large coordinated barrage of cruise missiles from every ship and sub in the area to disable as much anti-air as possible immediately followed by a massive air bombing campaign on all known nork arty positions and strategic targets. Land invasion?

Im all for blowing the fuck out of lil Kim and his fatty friends but an occupation sounds shitty right now after the recent debacles of Iraq and Afghanistan. Again someone will need to do a ground occupation and I don't want it to be the Chinese and im not sure the South Korea can handle it by themselves.

I think they're actually less than 10 surface ships per group now, with usually at least 1 submarine attached.

3 CBGs?  That's a lot of fly bys and shirtless volleyball.

Hard and fast. None of this 10 year bullshit
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:29:49 AM EDT
Yes but how many ESGs are in the area? I'd think that'd be a bigger indication of something about to kick off. 
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:31:46 AM EDT
USS Ronald Regan is stationed in Japan, so it's often in that area anyway... meh news.

And I think the USS Nimitz is still at San Diego doing sea trial training stuff.

Fake news.

I do t know if it's real but I would imagine the plan would be an overwhelming decapitating strike.  Probably kill Lil Kim right away. I doubt once he is dead his lmilitary leadership would be interested in a one on one with Uncle Sam.
