Carrier USS John C Stennis establishes temporary Sri Lanka air logistics hub | Janes - 13 December 2018

The hub includes an airstrip and storage facilities to provide logistics support to USN ships operating in the Indian Ocean. It also has the potential to provide expeditionary logistics support during humanitarian and disaster relief missions.

Such logistical hubs are becoming increasingly necessary for USN operations in the Indo-Pacific regions as the service executes its plan to deploy more forces in the region, naval experts noted.
