The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Gerald Ford has been in the Mediterranean for more than 200 days. His stay in the region was first connected with the war in Ukraine.

The US Navy has extended the presence of its carrier strike group in the Mediterranean Sea, led by the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Gerald Ford. This was reported by the information service of the United States Naval Institute.

The decision to proceed was made against the backdrop of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

The aircraft carrier USS Gerald Ford has been in the Mediterranean Sea for more than 200 days. His stay in the region was first connected with the war in Ukraine.

In addition to the aircraft carrier, the group included the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy, destroyers USS Ramage, USS McFaul and USS Thomas Hudner.

There are currently two US Navy carrier strike groups in the Middle East – one on the USS Gerald Ford aircraft carrier near Israel, the second on the USS Eisenhower aircraft carrier near Iran.

In addition, in the Eastern Mediterranean and northern Red Sea there are three large amphibious ships of the US Navy’s amphibious assault group, led by the amphibious assault ship USS Bataan. The ships contained the 26th Marine Expeditionary Battalion, numbering about 2.5 thousand people.

Let’s remember that on October 8, the United States announced that it was sending its aircraft carrier group to the eastern Mediterranean because of the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel.

And at the end of September, the largest US aircraft carrier in the world, Gerald Ford, arrived in Turkey.
