    That's rather open ended. It only discusses the political repercussions, not the possible means of occurrence in any detail. Also, as the recent tests conducted against USS America hint at it would be a major task to outright sink one in any case.

      There has not been an all out war since WWII. The attack on a US carrier could be seen as an attack on a national treasure and if we lost so many people in one attack could instantly turn a limited conventional war into a major conventional war, which probably no nation on Earth can win against the United States.

        I don't know if it would be a national treasure as a valuable asset. There's no way an attack on a CBG wouldn't provoke massive retaliation. If we didn't, we may as well pack up and go home with our toys. As TAG said, the video doesn't go into details on how it could be done. All carriers travel with at least one Tico and 2-3 burkes, along with an SSN. That's a lot of AAW and ASW assets. Any nation powerful enough to try it is also too big to invade, so we would just attrit their naval and air forces, along with infrastructure.

          I'd be more concerned for an independently steaming RN carrier to be attacked and sunk. It has much less defense against swarm attacks than a USN CBG.

            RN carrier is for prestige purposes only its military use it to bully some very small country or strikes on some militia group

            even against a moderate military power that has access to a few dozen decent antiship missiles it is toast
