Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to determine how the Navy can better train and employ its premier fleet asset, the carrier battle group, to meet the new regional challenge. The focus is on the armed forces available today and how their employment could be optimized in light of reductions in the military budget. By briefly examining recent operational employments of the carrier battle group, weaknesses in flexibility and inter-operability are noted. Recommendations include varying the composition of embarked air wings optimizing the forces within the battle group and developing the ability to effectively integrate into a joint campaign.
