POTD: USS Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group

    USS Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group

    Our Photo Of The Day articles bring together some of the most eye-catching and visually appealing images. You won’t find a lot of pictures of sunsets, flowers or tourist landmarks here, instead, the photo selection spans from soldiering, firearms, special units, snipers and the odd knife or two. Today we have a picture taken from the HNoMS Fridtjof Nansen (from the Royal Norwegian Navy) of the USS Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group as they are passing through the Strait of Gibraltar.

    According to Wikipedia, the armament consists of 2 × Mk 57 Mod3 Sea Sparrow, 2 × RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile and 3 × Phalanx CIWS. The carrier has 90 fixed-wing and helicopters in total, more than most countries’ Air Forces.
