US Deploys World’s Most Expensive Military Ship to Atlantic Carrying 9000 NATO Troops

Today the US is deploying one of the world’s most advanced aircraft carriers to the Atlantic, complete with nuclear reactors and fighter jets.

The USS Gerald R Ford is sailing from Virginia, USA to the Atlantic Ocean and carrying a NATO strike group.

It’s unclear whether the launch is linked to the conflict in Ukraine but as the carrier cost the US more than $13billion (£11bn), the country’s navy is obviously keen to show it off.

The ship is powered by two nuclear reactors and can carry more than 70 aircraft, including deadly helicopters and jets.

The Atlantic deployment is due to carry 9000 personnel from nine NATO countries, including the US, Canada, Finland, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden.
