        something I doubt this power, tin cans by and large.
        USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75) took part in supporting military operations from November 28, 2000 to May 23, 2001 in the Persian Gulf, but the efficiency of its sorties was less than 1%. Well, the rest, of course, yes. In 2003, he took part in the filming of The Tears of the Sun with Bruce Willis and appeared in the 8th episode of the 1995 anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. The impressive combat history of the ship, worth more than $ 4 billion, is not it?
        "Charles de Gaulle" (R91) - in general, some kind of epidemic, in the entire history of operation, this ship destroyed more than 70 people of its crew, both from irradiation of the reactor, and torn tapes, stoppers, etc. Made a couple of three sorties to Etander in the Middle East. The efficiency of the ship, together with a generally negative value, the cost of this "pacer" and "symbol of the greatness of France" also amounted to some kind of unearthly amounts, something about 5 billion, if in USD.
        Cavour - (Cavour 550) - the newest, not yet "shot" aircraft carrier, the pride of the Italian Navy. I think. in general, it is necessary "tit for tat" for our "Novorossiysk" to attach to the bottom in the region of this Gulf of Oman.

        In general, when many RCC air forces of different classes are adopted, these all AUGs are no more than good targets, even if the targets are well protected. Ajis isn’t enough for everyone, and how much ambition.
        IMHO all of course, please do not be offended, lovers of AUGOV and Augovyat.

      This is the answer to those artists who do not recognize the AUG as a component of the armed forces of any leading country in the world. They say we don’t have them and they don’t need to, but this is all out of envy.

      Of course, in a total world war with the use of all strategic forces, the AHG will not have time to turn around. Yes, they are not created for world war. They were created to demonstrate power; only one demonstration forces politicians to change their minds. They are created for regional conflicts that are growing in the modern world, and MV, so it is beyond three horizons. They were created for military defense of any interests of the state as a continuation of politics in any region of the globe where conventional weapons cannot be delivered.

      How much more powerful would Russia's point of view be if not five old, landing barges were hanging off the coast of Syria, but a modern connection Russian AUG which with its combat capabilities would cover the entire Middle East.

        Dear Beck!
        For you, AUG is already just some kind of fetish!
        AUG as a component of the armed forces any leading country in the world.

        That is, if there is no AUG, then there is no fleet in this country, or it is good for nothing!
        I repeat in the USSR there was not a single AUG! At the same time, the Yusov admirals were terrified of our aircraft carriers and missile cruisers, which operated in the vastness of ALL oceans, while not requiring such a "convoy" and support as their vaunted AUG!
        They are created to demonstrate power ...

        And they showed us a lot? Remind me the result?
        And for any banana-oil republic, 1 aircraft carrier + a couple of "cattle carriers" with a battalion of the Guards Marine Corps is enough!
        PS: How much and what happened next to Scotland, and why the whole Cohesive Kingdom bought all the diapers for a week ahead, because this is not Great AUG, but Russian garbage ..
        I suggest: all "urashniks" and "cultivators" have a chance to see what the enti supermen will work out, and then give an assessment based on the results!

        On the issue of the effectiveness and need of AUGs off the coast of Syria:
        Question: What prevented the deployment of a combined air division from the fighter and bomber regiments in Syria? - the answer was unnecessary.
        AUGs are not needed in regions of interest to Russia. Except Pacific Fleet.
        State policy rests primarily on the competent recruitment of allies, and not on the use of AUGs (remember the operation in Gulf No. 1 - only 20% of the tasks were solved by deck-based aviation (and even that flew from concrete blocks once) - the rest is attacks from airbases in Turkey and Kuwait). AUG is just a tool that makes fulfilling the tasks of dominating the world more comfortable, but not ensuring that this task is performed on its own.

          But this is not necessary, ALL are wary of fear of any enemy unit. If you do not guard, it is better not to fight. AUG is a group, not a convoy, with full self-support of life, and a complete response to all threats.

          Such an action is interference in the internal affairs of any country. The world community would condemn this, and the Kremlin, to one degree or another, honors international relations. And AUG is a sovereign territory of the state to which AUG belongs.

          On your AUG go to the seas and oceans with blindfolds and closed ears. Here a big question is the general training of personnel and the quality of the equipment. This question, in peacetime, will always be open, It is not known who will be the first to discover whom.

          There is an adequate answer to "Ash" in this section of weapons. At AUG, no.

          In general, you have a strange position. That way in the Middle Ages it was possible to declare - We don’t have guns and don’t need them, the expenses are big, drag them along the roads for a long time, they are visible for a kilometer and so on. We better send a hussar squadron bypassing. They are here and rustle.

            the thought led you a little to the wrong steppe, I pointed out what fits in proportion to the current doctrine of MO. We have a sword that is sharper, we have an aircraft-carrying cruiser, there will be a couple of three aircraft carriers, they will be built after 25 years, and that's not a fact. And then - platforms ... well, you yourself know. Ash trees are quite a formidable weapon for themselves, by the way, and news on the topic m http://www.vesti.ru/doc.html?id=1193913 But the main thing is not that all these bourgeois have recognized something there or not, otherwise, that we simply must bring these technologies to such a level in order to have control over any part of the theater from under the water without the possibility of detection. Ash can do as much in practical power projection as the whole AUG cannot. Let me remind you once again that we are not planning aggression and revolution in third world countries, we have other "enemies" that cannot be fought with their weapons.

              Well, that's what they plan to build, and in my opinion this is right. I talked about this. Better late than never. Late even has some advantages in terms of taking into account all the identified shortcomings and the use of the latest, different systems.

              The Kremlin is planning, which means it understands that it is impossible to leave a country like Russia without visual power in the vast oceans. China and India didn’t have a fleet in the 19th and 20th centuries, and now they are developing, in addition to the fleet, AUGs. China so generally at a frantic pace.

              It will be IMPOSSIBLE in the future, defending Russia's interests in the Pacific Ocean, wedged by five landing barges between Carrier Impact Groups USA and China. That way, and the ocean can be lost and engage only in coastal swimming.

                Ash can do as much power in a practical projection as a whole AUG cannot.


                I will repeat. The opposing side has an answer to the Ash in the form of re-equipped Ohio nuclear-powered ships carrying 24 Tomahawk high-precision cruise missiles instead of 150 Tridens. ("Ash" has 32 missiles.) But there is no adequate answer to the AUG.

                And "Ash" with "Ohio" cannot do what AUG does. These are two completely different weapons systems. Each of which is designed to perform its own tasks.

    It would be fun to hear the Yankers vilify each other these European non-carrier aircraft carriers (by their standards) laughing The air group is 3-4 times smaller than the US air group, I would not be surprised if the numerous combat use coefficients are also several times smaller. Suitable only for zonal cover of a convoy. For reasons of prestige, having an aircraft carrier is commendable, but expensive. Even Thailand, and that has almost a museum trough with a flight deck. And so, in fact, the European "rulers of the seas" are ships of anti-aircraft defense and air defense convoys. Tobish in Yankee reality - escort aircraft carriers wassat To have as much as YueSa's budget does not allow, but you want to seem great. Therefore, they arrange a "show" such as joint exercises in order to somehow calm themselves and seem strong in the eyes of potential victims.
