Battle Group

The Battle Group is led by an aircraft carrier and include an airwing and a small contingent of cruisers to act as carrier escorts. In addition to this Battle Force, it also included an Amphibious Group of ships to transport and support Marine Expeditionary Force amphibious operations. This Amphibious Ready Group will typically include an escort of three ships [destroyers or frigates], the composition of which changes on each Marine Expeditionary Force [MEF] deployment. The Battle Group is the largest operational unit of the US Navy. Each deployed Battle Group consists of a unique combination of ships.
