Off the coast of Syria, USS Harry Truman and Turkish Navy ships held exercises

In the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Syria, joint exercises of the American AHU led by the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Harry Truman and ships of the Turkish Navy took place. It is reported by the command of the 6th operational fleet USA.


Harry Truman group exercises with Turkish Navy to increase operational engagement with NATO and strengthen maritime security

- said in a statement.

It is explained that in the exercises, in addition to the USS Harry Truman aircraft carrier itself, ships from the AUG took part: the USS Normandy missile cruiser, several destroyers, and an atomic submarine. The Turkish Navy was represented by frigates Gediz and Gaziantep.

At the headquarters of the 6 fleet, it was noted that in addition to the USS Harry Truman AUG, the USS Florida attack nuclear submarine equipped with 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range of 1,6 thousand km is on alert on the Mediterranean.

According to the statement of the command of the 6 fleet of the U.S. Navy, the USS Harry Truman carrier goes to the Persian Gulf, where it will be replaced by the USS Abraham Lincoln, which, due to the unfavorable situation with the state of the U.S. carrier fleet, is in the Middle East longer than planned.

It should be noted that for the USS Harry Truman aircraft carrier, the Mediterranean can be considered almost the main place of deployment. The aircraft carrier, at the head of its AUG, repeatedly visited the Mediterranean Sea, was there and took part in Operation "Unshakable Determination" against terrorists from the Islamic State banned in Russia.

As previously reported by the US Navy command, amid the aggravation between the US and Iran, USS Abraham Lincoln at the head of the strike group, 19 of October this year first entered the Persian Gulf, passing through the Strait of Hormuz. Before that, he cruised for six months in the neighboring Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea.

    The Turks worked out the flooding of the American AUG as an autonomous squadron of the Russian warrant.

      The other day, Turkish Foreign Minister Chavushoghou said that his country supports the strengthening of NATO in the Baltic countries, as well as that Turkey remains a faithful ally in the alliance and will support any action against Russia.
      I wrote this to the fact that many of our citizens seriously expect that Turkey is about to leave NATO and become our ally.

        And they don’t write to VO that Turkey supported the NATO resolution on protecting the Baltic countries and Poland from Russia, such is the outgoing Sultan from NATO

          The Turks have very close relations, not with the Akmerikos, but with the Germans. Some kind of agreement, visa-free, Germany for the Turks is the main supplier of everything. Turks are dependent on the Germans.
          Turks go to Germany to live and work, Germans, especially pensioners, go to Turkey during the winter months, live in hotels where all-inclusive. At this time, Turkey has big discounts on accommodation, and the Germans save on a communal apartment.
          They will not come out of NATO.

            The Turks are very slowly, but confidently occupying Germany, there are already more than 5 million of them, so the Germans will play out.

              The Turks adopted the Chinese substitution strategy :: slow, but 100% winning :: Merkel no longer knows what to do next in Germany if entire municipalities become Turkish, with Turkish residents and Turkish authorities (and then it will be with requirements Turkish at school, Turkish customs in everyday life and Turkish (Muslim) rituals in today's empty churches, which are slowly turning into mosques).
              I do not think that the substitution will last more than 10 years, when everything was prepared by the previous 30-40 anniversary.

          There are 2 programs, one to protect the Baltic states and the second to protect Turkey. They are running in parallel. The Turks alone were pulling with signing in the Baltic, and while they have signed a current of 2 out of three.

        Turkey has historically been such an enemy of Russia, and as long as these two countries exist on Earth, it will remain so when there is obvious benefit. Turkey agrees to maintain trade relations, but nothing more.

      It looks like the sultan stalled, there was a fog on the sea. Or do Turkish ships look more interesting against the backdrop of the AUG?

        A few hours ago it became known that the Yemeni rebels destroyed in less than 24 hours the second reconnaissance aircraft of the Saudi Arabian Air Force, which checked the situation before the passage of the American aircraft carrier Harry Truman at the head of the aircraft carrier strike group.
        At the moment, the fact remains unknown whether it is a reconnaissance aircraft or an unmanned aerial vehicle, however, given the unmanned flight along the west coast of Yemen, an unknown aircraft could indeed collect information for the subsequent safe passage of the U.S. Navy carrier strike group through Bab- Al-Mandeb Strait, since the Hussites may well attack both the aircraft carrier itself and the entire strike group.

      Greece is also a member of NATO, but they were not invited, so that would not work. lol

        Under the supervision of a big brother, only the Turks can buck, at least somehow noticeable.

          Even under supervision they could cling to each other so that the big brother could not do anything.

    Their "hobby" is to patrol. On land - from the Russian Federation, on the sea - from the USA.
    But I think that sanctions from the US will still be received.
