30 live interceptions of armed Russian jets during carrier group aircraft operations in the Mediterranean


More details of interactions with Russian forces in June were revealed by the Commander of the UK Carrier Strike Group this week.

Cdre Steve Moorhouse was speaking from HMS Queen Elizabeth in the Indian Ocean, via a recorded message to the Pacific Future Forum event held on HMS Prince of Wales in Portsmouth. He said that while operating in the Eastern Mediterranean, jets from his flagship had been launched to conduct missions over the Black Sea which involved flying a round trip of “well over 1,000 miles”. These flights were conducted simultaneously with the first carrier-based combat sorties flown against Daesh.

Assuming they passed through Turkish airspace, missions to the Black Sea were almost certainly supported by air-air refuelling as 1,000 miles is the maximum extent of F-35B range. To have significance, the aircraft would need to perform at least a brief patrol in the area. Returning to the carrier flying on ‘fumes’ is a risk that would be usually avoided for a non-combat mission. It is worth noting that, despite critics complaints about the ‘short legs’ of the F-35B, it has more than double the range of the legacy Sea Harrier FA2 (c460 miles).

The appearance of UK (and USMC) combat aircraft over the Black Sea is another tangible sign that NATO is willing to support its partners and uphold international law in the region. This was followed up by HMS Defender’s innocent passage through the territorial waters of occupied Crimea on 23rd June.

HMS Queen Elizabeth

A week of Engagement and exercising with Indian Armed Forces has come to an end. What better way to say goodbye to the indian navy than with a traditional cheer ship. Thank you India, we will be back soon.

Photo essay – the Carrier Strike Group – from the Pacific to the Arabian Sea


This photo and video essay cover the activities of the UK Carrier Strike Group in September and October. Having gone as far east as planned, the group began its westward journey home, including participation in three major exercises during this period.

After more than 120 days spent at sea since leaving Portsmouth in May, units of the CSG arrived in Guam for a period of mid deployment maintenance and rest on 13th September ahead of the next phase of the deployment. This second visit to the island was because the time spent in Yokosuka, Japan was curtailed by COVID restrictions confining crews to ships. While in Guam, personnel were able to get ashore for well-deserved rest and relaxation.
