USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75) crossed into
the eastern Atlantic Ocean entering the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility. It is believed that it will replace USS Abraham
Lincoln (CVN-72) which was operating in the waters. Rear Adm. Andrew Loiselle, the commander of
the Truman Carrier Strike Group, said in a statement., “We are ready to continue our steadfast
commitment to our allies and partners in U.S. 6th Fleet. These vital sea lanes must remain open for
global commerce and prosperity, and nothing in the world is able to foster regional security
like a carrier strike group.” Viewers may note that Truman was undergoing
repairs in its electrical distribution system and Abraham Lincoln’s deployment to the
Middle East was extended. In this video Defense Updates reports on why

to be improvements on previous U.S. aircraft carriers, in particular, the Enterprise and
Forrestal-class vessels All 10 Nimitz-class aircraft carriers were
constructed between 1968 and 2006 at Newport News Shipbuilding Company, Virginia, in the
largest dry-dock in the western hemisphere. USS Harry S. Truman is the 8th ship of her
class and was commissioned on 25th July 1998. She is named after the 33rd President of the
United States, Harry S. Truman. USS Harry S. Truman is one of the largest
vessels constructed. It has a displacement of 100,000 tonnes, and
an overall length of 332.8 m or 1,092 feet. To give viewers a perspective, it is about
3 football fields long. It is powered by two A4W nuclear reactors,
kept in separate compartments. These power 4 propeller shafts and can produce
a maximum speed of over 30 knots or 56 km/h. As a result of the use of nuclear power, the
ship is capable of operating continuously for over 20 years without refueling and is
predicted to have a service life of over 50 years. Practically it has unlimited range & endurance. USS Harry S. Truman being a Nimitz class carrier
possesses a multitude of different radars including electronically scanned array 3D
radars. It is equipped with 16 to 24 RIM-7 Sea Sparrow
or NATO Sea Sparrow missiles. RIM-7 Sea Sparrow is a US ship-borne short-range
anti-aircraft and anti-missile weapon system, primarily intended for defense against anti-ship
missiles. Its range is 19 km and 12 miles Close-in weapon (CIWS) duties are performed
by Phalanx, & RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile. Phalanx CIWS has a 4500 /min rate of fire. RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missiles have speed
in excess of Mach 2. USS Harry S. Truman can carry a flight group
of more than 60 aircraft, including F-18 jet fighters. These are twin-engine, supersonic, all-weather
carrier-capable 4th generation multirole fighter aircraft. They have a payload of 7700 kg (17000 lbs)
and can carry ground attack weapons as well as air-to-air missiles. The versatility of the aircraft can be gauged
from the fact that on the first day of Operation Desert Storm, two F 18, each carrying four
2,000 lb. bombs shot down two Iraqi Migs and then proceeded to deliver their bombs on target. The flotilla of aircraft has enough firepower
to mount a credible offensive against any Iranian misadventure. USS Harry S. Truman doesn’t operate alone
but is deployed with the “carrier strike group” or CSG. Truman’s delayed departure made the U.S
Navy deploy the carrier escorts from the Truman CSG without an air wing or carrier to escort,
forming a surface action group or SAG. Destroyer Squadron 28, with Arleigh Burke-class
guided-missile destroyers USS Lassen (DDG-82), USS Farragut (DDG-99) and USS Forrest Sherman
(DDG-98) worked with Truman and its air wing in summer. In September, these ships were deployed as
a SAG and are supporting the Abraham Lincoln CSG, whose own escorts were relieved. Lt. Andriana Genualdi, a Navy spokesperson,
told USNI News, Arleigh Burke-class destroyers USS Bainbridge
(DDG-96) and USS McFaul (DDG-74) are accompanying Truman as it cruises east. Arleigh Burke-class destroyers are equipped
with a diverse array of weapons for Anti Aircraft Warfare (AAW), Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW),
Anti Surface Warfare (ASuW) as well as have the ability to intercept ballistic missiles
through Aegis Ballistic missile defense system. It is designed to be a multi-weapons platform
and is capable of dealing with various kinds of threats. Each has in total 96 cell Mk 41 Vertical Launch
System (VLS) divided into two blocks of 32 & 64 cells. These can be configured with the combination
of the following weapons, based on the mission. 1. RIM-66M-5 Standard SM-2MR Block IIIB for Air
Defense & Anti Ship role with a range of 103 miles or 167 km and speed of Mach 3.5 2. RIM-156A SM-2ER Block IV for Anti Aircraft
& Anti Ship role with a range of 115 miles or 185 km and speed of Mach 3.5. 3. RIM-161 SM-3 for Ballistic missile defense
with a range of 435 miles or 700 km and speed of Mach 10. It can also be used as an Anti-satellite weapon. 4. RIM-162A ESSM for anti-missile role with a
range of 31 miles or 50 km and speed of Mach 4. It can be quad packed in single Mk 41 cell. 5. RIM-174A Standard ERAM or SM 6 for anti-air
warfare with a range of 150 miles or 240 km and speed Mach 3.5. It can also be used as a high speed anti-ship
missile. 6. BGM-109 Tomahawk for land attack. It has a long range of up to 1550 miles or
2500 km with subsonic speed. 7. RUM-139A VL-ASROC anti-submarine missile with
a range of 13 miles or 22 km. It also has 2 × Mk 141 Harpoon Missile Launcher
for Anti Ship role. It has a range of 70 to 150 miles depending
on the variant. The ships are equipped with two Mark 46 triple
torpedo tubes. Mk-46 torpedoes is a potent weapon and can
potentially cripple any ship with one strike. 2 MH-60R Seahawk LAMPS III helicopters are
also present for Anti Submarine Warfare. Other than it is equipped with a long-range
naval gun for close range offense. It also has ‘Phalanx’ Close-In Weapon
System for last-ditch missile defense. The strike group could have a Virginia class
attack submarine but it is not clear if for this mission any have been deployed. The Virginia class submarines can defeat enemy
submarines, clear sea mines, as well as score, hits on land installing. CNN reported, citing U.S. defense and administration
officials, that intelligence gathered throughout November indicates a potential Iranian threat
aimed at American forces in the region. According to CNN, Iran has been moving troops
and weapons throughout the region that could be used for a potential attack,
To deter Iranian aggression in the region, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday
that President Donald Trump is considering deploying nearly 14,000 more troops to the
Middle East, which could include dozens more ships and equipment. In this situation USS Harry S. Truman will
play a pivotal role and capabilities of its air wing will make sure that the U.S has an
edge in case a conflict ensues. Iran’s air force is outdated and stands
no chance against Truman’s air assets. The warships of the CSG could be used to enforce
a naval blockade if required. It remains to be seen how Iran tries to counter
this.
