As we have reported earlier U.S. Navy USS Harry S. Truman Aircraft Carrier Suffered Major Electrical Malfunction ahead of an expected deployment this fall.

The carrier is supposed to go out for a second deployment, after operating in U.S. 6th Fleet and U.S. 2nd Fleet from April to December last year.

Now According to the latest reports, the U.S. Navy carrier strike group is weirdly deployed without its aircraft carrier.

Two guided-missile destroyers and other escort ships left Mayport, Fla., while crews continued working to repair the Truman’s electrical system, which malfunctioned during a pre-deployment exercise in late August, USNI News reported.

Navy officials couldn’t say when the Truman would be operational. The Navy’s standard policy is not to discuss future operations, Capt. Scott Miller, a U.S. Fleet Forces Command spokesman, told USNI.
