American aircraft carrier in Souda! The presence of the USA in the region is increasing at a time quite flammable in Greek-Turkish

Indicative of the increasingly close relationship between the US and Greece at the military level, the statements made aboard the aircraft carrier USS George HW Bush by the Commander of Carrier StrikeGroup 10 GHW BCSG, Vice Admiral Dennis Velez

In one of the most critical junctures for Greek-Turkish relations and at a time when war cries in Turkey are being heard more and more loudly, the symbol of US military power, the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS George HW Bush, sailed to Souda in the morning. The imposing – 333 meters long – “floating fortress” was accompanied not only by the armada of the Carrier Strike Group 10 (CSG 10) force but also by the frigate of the Navy “ADRIAS” from the moment it approached Crete until it docked at special jetty in Marathi.

With the information stating that he will remain in Souda until next Monday when he will solve problems again. Although until now the next movements of the American behemoth have not been known, it is considered certain that the GEETHA and the Staffs in cooperation with the USNAVY will plan a series of joint training activities at the air and naval level with the participation of fighters and warships as they do all the time and more strongly lately. After all, the decision to escort the USSGeorge HW Bush by the “ADRIAS” frigate when the American armada approached Greek waters is indicative of the US NAVY’s willingness to send a message of close cooperation.

The meeting in Venice between the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Michael Martin Gilday, and the Chief of Naval Operations, Vice Admiral Stylianos Petrakis, took place in the context of the Regional Naval Power Conference.

Indicative of the increasingly close relationship between the US and Greece at the military level are the statements made aboard the aircraft carrier USS George HW Bush by the Commander of Carrier StrikeGroup 10 GHW BCSG, Rear Admiral Dennis Velez. “Defense and security cooperation between the United States and Greece is at an all-time high. We value the relationship we have with our Greek allies and the bases and support facilities in Souda Bay continue to serve as a ‘jewel’ in the Eastern Mediterranean enabling US and NATO missions, interoperability and security in the region.” he pointed out. “We are stronger when we work together with our allies and also when we build on the already strong relationships we have with them,” added the top US Navy officer. And all this while the superpower has virtually excluded Turkey from any Allied educational activity with few exceptions.

In addition to the powerful aircraft carrier, the US armada includes the guided-missile cruiser USS Leyte Gulf Ticonderoga and the destroyers Arleigh Burke USSNitze, USS Farragut, USS Truxtun and USS Delbert D. Black. A small Fleet with fearsome firepower.

The arsenal of the USS George H.WBush includes a total of 90 aircraft and helicopters. F/A-18E and F/A-18F fighters, electronic warfare aircraft and EA-18G and E-2D flying radars, but also the state-of-the-art MH-60S and MH-60R anti-submarine helicopters similar to those acquired by our Navy.

The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS George HW Bush can reach a speed of up to 30 knots and its two nuclear reactors are capable of operating continuously for 20 years without refueling.
