Carrier Strike Group 2021 - CSG21

Unread post by Pelican »

FROM NAVY LOOKOUT:

Nine ships, aircraft from 5 squadrons & 3,700 personnel will comprise the UK-led Carrier Strike Group that will sail in late May
Unlikely to get much official comment on submarines but group will undoubtedly will be accompanied by at least one SSN.
Various warships from other partner nations will join the group for different parts of the deployment.

[Seems sensible to to treat this as one subject rather than moving from ship to ship etc. threads.]

More details of the upcoming UK Carrier Strike Group deployment emerge

HMS Queen Elizabeth and the UK Carrier Strike Group are due to set sail in late May. Here we outline the geographical and practical aspects of what is known about this landmark operational deployment.

The deployment has many objectives these include; enhancing partnerships and conducting multi-lateral naval exercises and visits to many nations. Although only a transient presence in the Indo-Pacific, it will act as a reminder that the RN is back in the carrier game and post-Brexit Britain is interested in renewed trade partnerships in what is now the most dynamic region of the world. It is a signal to China and other potential adversaries that, in coalition with allies, the UK is willing to uphold international law. For the MoD, it is a chance to prove the carrier, its escorts, aircraft and supporting logistic chain can deploy over long ranges and operate in diverse environments. It will also further deepen interoperability and integration with US allies.
