A search on Google for the location of US aircraft carriers undoubtedly brings up several results. However, how accurate do you think the info on USNI news is?

These are the approximate positions of the U.S. Navy’s deployed carrier strike groups and amphibious ready groups throughout the world as of June 17, 2019, based on Navy and public data. In cases where a CSG or ARG is conducting disaggregated operations, the chart reflects the location of the capital ship.

It's probably fairly accurate, as far as general locale, within a few hundred miles.

Most 1st world, and virtually all western countries with a military of any considerable strength have satalites that can pinpoint a carriers location in real time, so what would be the point in obsfucation?

There are several sites that you can find general locations on the carriers. They generally give a vague location like 7th Fleet AOR, or don't bother updating it if they don't want it known.

It's accurate.

Unless a ship is in the middle of the Atlantic, most foreign countries know well in advance if a navy ship is near by. From replenishment at sea to refueling or making port after being underway for a while, the locals knew our schedules better than we did sometimes (5th fleet at least)

You can't hide a carrier, so why try? You can hide its capabilities, such as its top speed, so its time to target may be a lot faster than some realize. To some extent, knowing where a carrier strike group is is part of the game. Further, because of some very sophisticated electronic equipment, you can make a whole fleet of ships appear where they are not. Deception is also part of the game.

Well, the map only shows seven, I thought we had ten or eleven of the big ones plus many smaller ones that could launch planes. So, not very accurate.

Why show carriers that aren't deployed? One is in RCOH, so isn't going anywhere for a couple more years. One, I believe, is in PIA so is at least several months from being deployable.

What did they do with the old Decommissioned carriers?

The CVs are either turned into museums or cut into scrap. They are still figuring out how to get rid of the only CVN that's been decommissioned. A couple of the CVs were sunk for tests.

We do, but they don't deploy all at once. In fact, 7 deployed all at once is rather unusual.

The last time I looked in detail four were deployed off the coasts doing post maintenance workups.

Thanks for posting, S&F for you. This is pretty neat.

If we all pool our money maybe we can buy one?

You don't need much money to buy one. The last one went for $1.00. FOB
