The October issue of Combat Aircraft, now on sale, is a feast of naval carrier aviation. The US Navy’s force of 11 nuclear-powered aircraft carriers currently includes nine ships that are capable of deploying as the flagship of a Carrier Strike Group (CSG). The CSG and the carriers’ embarked air wings provide the national command authority with a powerful, forward-deployed diplomatic weapon that is capable of projecting a tactical and strategic presence where and when required. Tom Kaminski has penned a thorough review of all the US Navy carriers plus their air wings.

The issue also includes a competition to win this fabulous Carrier Aviation in the 21st Century book by our friends at Harpia Publishing. Click here to enter the competition:
