Washington, The name of the US Navy’s 7th Fleet is intimidating China regarding the security of Taiwan amid tensions between China and the US since Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. The 7th Fleet of the US Navy is said to be the most powerful fleet in the world, which is more powerful than the navies of many countries. So let us know what is there in the 7th Fleet that is forcing China not to attack Taiwan.

The Seventh Fleet or Seventh Fleet of the United States Navy is the largest fleet stationed outside the United States. The fleet, which dominates the Pacific Ocean, is headquartered in Yokosuka Prefecture, Japan, with 50 to 70 state-of-the-art ships, 150 fighter aircraft and more than 27,000 troops stationed at present. This Seventh Fleet was formed on 15 March 1943 in Brisbane, Australia during World War II.

Headquarter has also lived in China
The headquarters of the Seventh Fleet has also lived in China, which is currently considered America’s biggest enemy. After the end of World War I, the 7th Fleet moved its headquarters to Qingdao, China. Also on 1 January 1947, the name of the fleet was changed to ‘Naval Forces Western Pacific’. Three years later, the Fleet moved its main base of operations from Qingdao to the Philippines in 1948, developing its base in the country’s ‘Subic Bay’ area and an airfield at ‘Sangli Point’. Significantly, the Seventh Fleet got its present name in the year 1949.

Capacity to operate in 124 million square kilometers
According to the US Defense Ministry, the operational area of ​​the Seventh Fleet spans more than 124 million square kilometers, which runs from the International Date Line to the India-Pakistan border and from the Kuril Islands in the north to the Antarctic in the south. 36 countries and 50% of the world’s population come under the purview of this fleet. The world’s five largest foreign armies China, Russia, India, North Korea and Republic of Korea are also included in its attacking range. Although America has friendly relations with most countries.

This fleet provides peace and stability in the Indo Pacific region
America’s Seventh Fleet plays an important role in providing stability in the Indo-Pacific region. This fleet also plays an important role in limiting China’s grandeur in the Taiwan Strait. The US has also been destroying the maritime theory of the Nine Dash Line implemented in China’s ‘South China Sea’ with the help of its Seventh Fleet. From time to time, with the help of free navigation operations, America helps to keep international sea routes open.

USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) is the Navy’s Nuclear Powered Supercarrier Ship currently in the Seventh Fleet. Together with the USS Ronald Reagan guided-missile destroyer and cruiser, forms a lethal and highly sophisticated Carrier Strike Group of up to 12 ships and 75 aircraft. For longer operation, 70 more fighter aircraft can be added to it. Seventh Fleet is equipped with 10-14 destroyers and cruisers at any given time. These destroyers can carry ballistic missile interceptors, long-range Tomahawk land-attack missiles and anti-aircraft missiles.

12 Nuclear Submarines
According to the US Defense Ministry, not only the destroyer but this fleet is also equipped with 12 nuclear submarines. The US Navy believes that if tensions with China turn into an arm conflict, their advanced submarines will provide the greatest advantage against the enemy. At the same time, compared to America’s Seventh Fleet, the entire Navy of China has only 6 nuclear submarines. At the same time, this fleet also has 16-20 reconnaissance aircraft to monitor the activity of China’s military, including the state-of-the-art P8 military version of the Boeing 737. These aircraft provide full area intelligence and field surveillance.

‘Old is Gold’
The fleet also has a range of combat experience making it the deadliest navy deployed in the Pacific Ocean. In addition to the Second World War, the Seventh Fleet has experience in the Philippines, Korean, Vietnamese and Gulf wars. Compared to the Chinese Navy, the Seventh Fleet is also seen far ahead in experience.

Seventh Fleet divided into 9 Task Forces
This destructive fleet of America is divided into a total of seven task forces. Starting from the sequence of Task Force 71, it continues till Task Force 79. The aircraft, weapons, soldiers and tasks of all the task force have already been decided. For example, Task Force 71 has been assigned the task of all Navy Special Warfare (NSW) units and Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Units. At the same time, TF 72 does the work of patrolling and reconnaissance of the enemy’s army. It is primarily equipped with anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft and maritime aerial surveillance platforms such as the P-3 Orion and Lockheed EP-3 reconnaissance aircraft.

In this, the most dangerous task force is considered to be 76 which works as amphibious assault task force. It is trained to attack very lethally and rapidly by hiding in the water. It consists of units capable of transporting assault troops from ship to shore and from shore to ship. America-class and Wasp-class amphibious assault ships, and landing craft are deployed in this task force. Similarly, each task force has its own assigned task which makes the attack extremely destructive. These task forces have been set up to achieve the target in a very professional manner.
