The Straits of Hormuz, as you likely know, is as strategic as it can be crowded as we see a small fishing vessel cutting across the bows of the aircraft carrier USS George W. Bush. Aircraft carriers of the CVN type are strategic assets all on their own so they are accompanied by several other ships making up a task force. As noted in the war game Harpoon — the only problem greater than having an aircraft carrier is not having an aircraft carrier.
