Saw this on Info Wars this morning and found it interesting in line with what I saw yesterday on the way home from across the river.
Looking over at the Norfolk Navy Base I saw three of the large Nimitz class carriers tied up at the pier. Having worked on a large number of them in a shipyard..I am very familiar with their outline compared to the Assault Helicopter/Harrier type built down south.
I know that the USS Lincoln is undergoing overhaul...that makes four Nimitz class carriers not deployed and the George Bush in another shipyard makes 5 Carriers not deployed. I do not know the status on the west coast but I could do this simple math right here on the east coast and have a rough idea.. I also know that the USS Enterprise is also in a shipyard...hence that is a lot of large aircraft carriers not deployed.
IN a wartime scenario one of the worst places for any navy ship/boat today is tied up at the pier...verses deployed and moving ..under way.
Nonetheless...that is a lot of carriers not out to sea...
Just some interesting information for which most of the public hasn't a clue.
Whenever something is going down in the world ..one of the questions immediately asked is "Where are the Carriers??" The carriers are never out there alone...they have escorts..including submarines. It is just a quick trip to the water to look across at Norfolk to see what is tied up at the piers. This means most of the escorts are also not deployed.
