The east coast of the United States was left without combat-ready aircraft carriers


From the open data of the US Navy, it became known that currently all six nuclear carriers located at the Norfolk Naval Base (the main naval base of the entire Atlantic fleet on the US East Coast) are not able to go on a long voyage. These ships are either in lengthy repair or in scheduled maintenance, which takes more than one month.


It is noted that the only conditionally combat-ready nuclear-powered aircraft carrier “Harry Truman” (USS Harry S. Truman, CVN-75), which was sent to the Middle East, hurriedly returned to the base in connection with problems in the electric networks. He had to make his campaign in the summer, but then he just did not have time to bring the desired state.

So the schedule for the presence of US nuclear carriers in the carrier carrier strike group (AUG) in different parts of the world was hopelessly broken. Now the U.S. Navy is feverishly trying to speed up repairs and are reviewing the scheduled maintenance of nuclear aircraft carriers.

It must be recalled that the United States has 11 nuclear carriers. Six of them: Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, George Washington, John Stennis, George Bush and Gerald Ford, are located at the Norfolk Naval Base in the Atlantic. Four more nuclear-powered aircraft carriers: Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Karl Vinson and Nimitz are located at bases on the US West Coast, while Ronald Reagan is permanently deployed at the Yokosuka base in Japan.

      We live, we are used to it, but we don’t shout at every corner that aircraft carriers are the basis of our military might and we are the masters of the sea. I wonder who will go to sea earlier - "Kuznetsov" or these 6 barges? And so much ambition was. laughing



      "Beauty and pride" is frayed, decayed. repeat There are 4 pieces in the Pacific Ocean, one at the pier dries oars, one at San Diego catches a fish, and somewhere else a couple got lost (not tracked on the map). request They are even ready to rent an aircraft carrier from England, apparently, it’s easier than repairing their own. That's all control over the oceans. sad
      Meanwhile, in South Africa at a joint exercise:

      The ocean is too large to be dominated by one country. Our countries gathered here as three partners to work together to develop operational cooperation, despite language difficulties, ”said Rear Fleet Commander Rear Admiral Bubele Mhlana.

      Citizen Bubele is turning the hegemon of the figurine. Survived. winked

            Then it’s understandable. They only say that he had long rested in the Bose and was buried with great honors.

    What a nightmare!
    And if they go out in a month in the sea? Nobody will eat a tie for inaccurate forecasts?
