Rudd -> Charles de Gaulle CSG (11/16/2015 11:52:11 PM)

Some possible specifics from Navy Recognition


...unusually large air wing...In total, Charles de Gaulle should have 31 to 34 aircraft onboard:
╗ 18x Rafale ;
╗ 8x Super-Etendard ModernisÚ (SEM) ;
╗ 2x E-2C Hawkeye ;
╗ 3 to 5 CSAR and SAR helicopters including Air Force Caracal and Navy Alouette III

This should be the last operational deployment of the SEM as the aircraft which is flying for the French Navy for over 40 years now is set to be pulled out of service next year.

Around the Charles de Gaulle CVN, the CSG itself should be composed of Horizon class Air Defennse Destroyer Chevalier Paul (classified as Frigate in the French Navy), Leygues class ASW Frigate La Motte-Picquet, Durance class replenishment oiler Marne and as usual a Rubis class submarine (SSN).
