A group of US naval ships entered the Mediterranean. On the eve of the amphibious airborne group consisting of UDC (helicopter carrier) "Iwo Jima", the docking ship "New York", the landing ship "Oak Hill" and the supply vessel "Ulyam Maklin" passed the Strait of Gibraltar. This became known after the publication of relevant data by the international system for the identification of ships and warships AIS.


In total, more than 3 thousand marines are on board the US Navy ship group. According to recent reports, the ultimate goal of this ship group is the Persian Gulf area - the area of ​​responsibility of the American 5th fleet.

    Go to Syria. Otvetka to the appearance in Syria Su57! Here's how not to regret the absence of aircraft carriers in our fleet — now they would be very useful for us there!

          Imagine that we have Ulyanovsk. And what would he do? Stood off the coast of Syria? What for? There is a ground airbase. Would you take a parallel course with this CG? What for? The Mediterranean puddle, and so on, is patrolled up and down by our submarines and shot by Caliber.
          There is nothing the aircraft carrier to do there, not his job. Now, if I were to go to the Caribbean ...

          Yes, where can I, the land sailor and the near, understand ... the state of the fleet and the need for an entire aircraft carrier ... without an air wing and an escort group. We would immediately have 6 fleets in the Mediterranean. They drowned the whole .. and everything else that floats and walks there.

      This cannot be an answer when they were loaded at the port, our planes have not yet arrived in Syria, rather, on the contrary, the strengthening of the Syrian air group was the answer of sending a US assault group.

        The answer to our Su-57 has been flying over Syria for a long time, and this is an ordinary rotation or strengthening of their MP in the Persian Gulf, because they will not take Khmeimim from the sea. They will pass by at a respectful distance to their destination. It’s just so customary for them --- each fleet sets up a battalion for emergency response to threats.

      Well, actually rocket ships with anti-ship missiles on board would be useful, rather than aircraft carriers! Or do you know the doctrine of the use of AUGs against AUGs, even the amers do not have one, never existed in the USSR, and Russia doesn’t! against the AUG there was a Legend, there were missile-bearing regiments and nuclear submarines, Russia, in addition to the Legend, had the same thing!

      And why do we need an aircraft carrier off the coast of Syria, in response to the American. ASU? To combat the American Air Force, there is absolutely no need for aircraft carriers, just basic missile launchers on the ground, with a range of up to 2000 km. Or cruisers, corvettes, frigates, submarines in the Mediterranean, in particular off the coast of Syria. Russia already has all this .. And the Naval Base, and the air base, and the Mediterranean naval naval group of the Russian Navy. And aircraft carriers are needed to strike in the absence of military bases, or to intimidate the enemy, and to block the enemy’s waterways ..))
