The Pentagon sent a second aircraft carrier to the Korean Peninsula area


"The aircraft carrier" John C. Stennis "and the ships accompanying it will complement the constantly deployed in the waters of the Far East grouping of the US Navy led by the nuclear aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, which is based in Yokosuka in the Tokyo area. The presence of two nuclear aircraft carriers in this region at once is unprecedented in recent years, ”the newspaper writes.

Such a move Washington is associated with the aggravation of the situation on the Korean Peninsula and in the South China Sea, where China, according to the Pentagon, "is trying to take control of a significant part of the water area."

It is assumed that "John K. Stennis" and the ships accompanying him in March will take part in joint maneuvers with South Korea.

Help newspaper: “John K. Stennis, with a displacement of 115,7 ths. Tons, can carry up to 90 airplanes, helicopters and converters. Its main striking force is the F / A-18 Hornet multipurpose combat aircraft. The carrier group performs forward-based and naval blockade operations. Her planes can strike at a distance of hundreds of kilometers from the aircraft carrier. "

    If you launch a Korean missile with a Russian trace - Putin’s cunning plan, then you coolly lit up the Yankos. I do not think that the Yankees can actively act on several fronts. They still carry out exercises with the Finns. It's hard for Uncle Sam to follow the chessboard.

          So far they’re only driving their rovers there. Probably they stick sticks --- they’re scribbling territory. And they haven’t found life there yet. Apparently life is hiding from them expertly. Yes, and what kind of life can there be on the planet where the American colonizer is locked up?

      Another great target for the Chinese !! It is known that two years ago they tested and put into production the latest DF-21D missile and called it the aircraft carrier killer. There is no defense against her yet. It is loaded with a small nuclear charge, quite sufficient for an aircraft carrier. For China, this is a very topical issue. However, there are such people in Russia for a long time. Amerov's aircraft carriers in the Black Sea, South China and other seas are in a "mousetrap" (as defined by Russian military experts), are good targets and pose no threat to states such as China or Russia. In the event of a military conflict, they will not have time to release a single missile! In general, it turns out a kind of formidable scarecrow with escort ships, a huge fleet, etc., but for whom? And who do they want to intimidate in the South China Sea? China?!

        We would have to build MAPLs more intensively, and the destroyers should already be implemented in iron. Well, the issue of the development of impact ekranoplanes and new anti-ship missiles with a range of more than 1000 km (for example, Zircon) becomes relevant again.

        It seems to be difficult to sink it, but to turn it into floating rubbish is quite so. And even if ALL planes rise from it, then they may have to land hell knows where, and not everyone can cope with this task.

    AUG - well suited for projecting forces on underdeveloped countries around the planet. But for a technologically developed state, I think they are not a strong threat. Indeed, in order to incapacitate an aircraft carrier, it is not necessary to send it to the bottom, but one or two accurate missiles of the RCC are enough.

      Even Granite, the most powerful anti-ship missile in the world, is not capable of sinking an avik with one or two hits. And the combat radius of the F \ A-18 is 1000 km + the missile launch range. The flight range of Granite is 600 km. Even if we take our long-range anti-ship missile Vulcan - 1000 km, which is also less than the efficiency of the aircraft-rocket connection. Even if we take into account that the ship will defend, say, the Fort air defense system, then all the same, the aircraft can strike the ship without entering the zone of action of the air defense system. So what did you write there about "projecting power on underdeveloped countries"? American AUG simply has nothing to oppose in the whole world. Therefore, the Chinese, who are so dynamically developing their fleet with claims to leadership, are actively engaged in aircraft carriers.

    How much flood.
    Air defense warrants AUG will not allow single air targets to attack. An AUG attack in one gulp is a difficult task for the PLA, and more so for the DPRK army. In addition, the Aegis system of escort ships (destroyers and URA cruisers) will repel the attack. And the location of bases on the Japanese islands expands the capabilities of air defense ships. So, not so easy it will be the goal - the defeat of the AUG in this area of ​​the sea.

        I am not informed of any cases of escorting the AUG by the indicated boats. The level of crew training is also not known to me. But, taking into account the lack of precedents for the intended use, I consider it insufficient to guarantee with a probability of more than 0,8 AUG lesions.
        The USSR Navy trained the US Navy quite well in terms of anti-submarine warrant defense.

    Even Granite, the most powerful anti-ship missile in the world, is not capable of sinking an avik with one or two hits. And the combat radius of the F \ A-18 is 1000 km + the missile launch range. The flight range of Granite is 600 km. Even if we take our long-range anti-ship missile Vulcan - 1000 km, which is also less than the efficiency of the aircraft-rocket connection. Even if we take into account that the ship will defend, say, the Fort air defense system, then all the same, the aircraft can strike the ship without entering the zone of action of the air defense system. So what did you write there about "projecting power on underdeveloped countries"? American AUG simply has nothing to oppose in the whole world. Therefore, the Chinese, who are so dynamically developing their fleet with claims to leadership, are actively engaged in aircraft carriers.


    and what are the limitations for Boreans along the way ?? or they may not ?? !!!
