    any CVNs near Russia will have been dealt with using hypersonic missiles...
    they won't be anywhere near Russia- times have changed & their mission will be to keep the SLOCs open in N. Atlantic/Pacific to supply allies & their own military in Europe & Asia.
    So, these things can strike ports & naval bases as well as CSGs/MEUs.
    Also, they would be useful in protecting SLOCs to ME, L. America, SE Asia. India & Africa from NATO navies- their possible/announced presence would be enough to dissuade them from imposing any blockade.

    Not all of them- they'll need to have CSGs & dozens of subs off the coasts to do that. Mind u that the 2nd US fleet was reestablished to counter the VMF subs in the N. Atlantic so the SLOCs remain open.
    So the Poseidons can wait for CSGs/MEUs near GUIK gap/Gibraltar or in the W. Pacific to ambush them.
