The Harry S. Truman Aircraft Carrier Strike Group has entered the Norwegian Sea - the first US carrier deployment to the Arctic in nearly three decades - to join 30 NATO allies and partner nations in exercise Trident Juncture 2018, the Navy announced in a press release on Friday.

"The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group (HSTCSG) will expand its complement of capabilities off the coast of Norway, performing air, surface and subsurface operations while being confronted by the trio of freezing temperatures, fierce winds, and unpredictable seas," the release stated. "After honing its skills independently, HSTCSG will join 30 NATO allies and partner nations to participate in Trident Juncture 2018."

 

The USS America was the last US aircraft carrier to operate in the area, participating in NATO exercise North Star in September 1991, the release noted.

Trident Juncture will take place in Norway and surrounding areas of the North Atlantic and the Baltic Sea, including Iceland and the airspace of Finland and Sweden from October 25 to November 23, the release said.

More than 50,000 participants — including 14,000 US service members — are expected to participate, utilizing approximately 150 aircraft, 65 ships, and more than 10,000 vehicles in support of the exercise, according to the release.

    I am concerned that we are going to keep slapping the Russians and the Chinese to some extent, that they are one day going to unload on us with everything they've got! Lets be friends (if at all possible? and work out our differences together. Share products. Ideas. Free thinking. Before it is too late. China is Totalitarian Maxima, I get that. We can (if we rightly so desired??) pressure them into reversing some of the awful things they impose on their citizens. Like freedom to worship. Organ harvesting, and so on. We must get control of freedom back in our own Country, also. Godspeed SCOTUS on the web giants and their ever increasing boot on freedom loving Americans. The World is not perfect. No, but it certainly was better than it is now. We must look to the past to have a better future, and it must be taught again.. Good luck, any of this, right? Pie in the sky.. Maybe so.

      U'mmm Ric!! The Bushs and Obumble tried that. The Ruskys and Chinks have had their ass kissed since Reagan. Let's try something different.

    Large BLOOD RED aurora makes for an interesting backdrop, if not a warning to coincide with Trident Juncture exercise (how do these retards come up with these equally retarded names anyways???):

    How to take out 7500 servicemen, almost 100 aircraft, and a floating airport all in one shot? Carriers are not what they used to be since it is not likely its defenses would intercept a single incoming hypersonic carrier killer. It is the wrong weapon for war with Russia, especially in the Arctic. At least the icy waters will preserve their bodies better if it ever goes down.

      Sadly, it appears we have nothing the Russians can't handle and thanks to the democrats, have driven the Russians into the hands of the Chinese and they now have ever stonger ties. We could have been friends with both. At least tried. Friends solve problems (trade imbalances, etc..) Enemies only exacerbate the situations.

      War today, is simple. (All out war) Either you are ready (the Russians seem to be?) or you are not. Over in as soon as an hour. There is no remedy. Either you survive? Or you do not. There is no buildup retaliation as in wars past. Like WWII. You are either ready? Say again, or you are not!

      Gunboat with maybe a Russian 'hook torpido' think it is? Can be launched from a gunboat (or any boat, really) goes up underneath the hull. Hits and blows.. Still great for getting planes to a staging area, perhaps? Terribly vulnerable today in many ways they were not, in years past.

      Agree with Leppard One. The days of Aircraft Carriers are pretty much over. Especially when it comes to Russia and China these days. Submarines are the only deterrant worth having that could be able to issue real results. However; Those "Flat Tops" do look impressive and "cool" on the MSM nightly news. Can certainly frighten the Somali war lords, and peoples like that. Unless they have a gunboat and can get close.. Twentieth century relics. So it seems.

    The action is in the Persian Gulf. Why is the Truman strike group hiding in the North Atlantic?
