Recommended Posts

USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75) is operating in the North Atlantic over the old stomping grounds of the Soviet submarine force, in the latest twist of a deployment that has broken with almost 20 years of U.S. carrier tradition, USNI News has learned.

A mere three months after deploying from Naval Station Norfolk, Va., a portion of the carrier strike group is now operating in the area of operations of U.S. Fleet Forces Command – which will soon be the territory of the reestablished U.S. 2nd Fleet – closer to Canada than to Europe. The region is where the Atlantic Ocean is its most deep and used to be a Cold War stalking ground for U.S. attack boats on the hunt for Soviet submarines. https://news.usni.org/2018/07/16/uss-harry-s-truman-now-operating-cold-war-era-submarine-hot-spot
