    just how powerful is this fleet? like how bad could it fuck shit up? i don't comprehend the power of what i'm looking at even though it clearly looks bad ass. (battle group echo from 1987)

    The entire Battle Group shown includes (from rear to front, top to bottom):

    Column 1: USNS Hassayampa (T-AO-145), USS Leftwich (DD-984), USS Hoel (DDG-13)

    Column 2: USS Kansas City (AOR-3), USS Bunker Hill (CG-52), USS Robert E. Peary (FF-1073)
    Column 3: USS Long Beach (CGN-9), USS Ranger (CV-61), USS Missouri (BB-63);

    That's probably the highest concentration of mobile asskickery ever captured in one picture.

    A complete air wing on the carrier plus all the cruise missles it and the rest of the ships carry and yes it doesn't show the subs. They're loaded for bear too. People pay attention when you park a carrier group off their shores.

    BTW, that's a carrier group, not a fleet.
