"US Navy Carrier Battle Group is, collectively, the scariest weapon in modern warfare. Like a Ship Of The Line before it, a CBG is the ultimate projection of power, a near-invulnerable floating iron fist capable of annihilating any similar force and punching sizeable holes in enemy countries.
Unfortunately, it's not much cop when it comes to protecting Marines from $50 homemade roadside bombs, but there you go. Although considerably more fragile than those of the present day, the CBG was the main player in the war in the Pacific."
