The fleet, which dominates the Pacific Ocean, is based in Yokosuka Prefecture, Japan, with 50 to 70 state-of-the-art ships, 150 combat aircraft and more than 27,000 troops currently stationed. This Seventh Fleet was formed on March 15, 1943 in Brisbane, Australia during World War II.

Headquarters Seventh Fleet also lived in China, which is currently considered America’s greatest enemy. After the end of World War I, the 7th Fleet moved its headquarters to Qingdao, China. Also on January 1, 1947, the name of the fleet was changed to “Naval Forces Western Pacific”. Three years later, the fleet moved its main base of operations from Qingdao to the Philippines in 1948, developing its base in the “Subic Bay” area of ​​the country and an airfield at “Sangli Point”. Significantly, the Seventh Fleet received its current name in 1949.

USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) is the Navy’s nuclear-powered supercarrier ship currently in the Seventh Fleet. Together with the guided missile destroyer and cruiser USS Ronald Reagan, it forms a deadly and highly sophisticated carrier battle group of up to 12 ships and 75 aircraft. For longer operation, 70 additional fighter aircraft can be added to it. The Seventh Fleet is equipped with 10 to 14 destroyers and cruisers at any one time. These destroyers can carry ballistic missile interceptors, long-range Tomahawk land attack missiles, and anti-aircraft missiles.

12 nuclear submarines
According to the US Department of Defense, not only the destroyer but this fleet is also equipped with 12 nuclear submarines. The US Navy believes that if tensions with China escalate into armed conflict, their advanced submarines will provide the greatest advantage against the enemy. At the same time, compared to the US Seventh Fleet, the entire Chinese Navy has only 6 nuclear submarines. At the same time, this fleet also has 16-20 reconnaissance aircraft to monitor Chinese military activity, including the state-of-the-art P8 military version of the Boeing 737. These aircraft provide area intelligence comprehensive and field monitoring.

In addition to World War II, the Seventh Fleet has experience in the Philippine, Korean, Vietnam, and Gulf Wars. Compared to the Chinese Navy, the Seventh Fleet is also considered far ahead in terms of experience.

Seventh Fleet divided into 9 task forces
This destructive fleet of America is divided into a total of seven task forces. Starting from the sequence of Task Force 71, it continues to Task Force 79. The planes, weapons, soldiers and tasks of the entire task force have already been decided. For example, Task Force 71 was given the task of all Navy Special Warfare (NSW) units and mobile explosive ordnance disposal units. At the same time, the TF 72 carries out the work of patrol and reconnaissance of the enemy army. It is mainly equipped with anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft and maritime aerial surveillance platforms such as the P-3 Orion and Lockheed EP-3 reconnaissance aircraft.

In this, the most dangerous task force is considered 76, which operates as an amphibious assault task force. He is trained to attack very deadly and fast while hiding in water. It consists of units capable of transporting assault troops from ship to shore and from coast to coast. America-class and Wasp-class amphibious assault ships and landing craft are deployed in this task force. Likewise, each task force has its own assigned task, which makes the attack extremely destructive. These working groups have been set up to achieve the goal in a very professional way.
