I don’t blame the soviets about their fear against the US carriers. If the option is to take the moment of the nuclear escalation stated in the canon, the situation in the Norwegian Sea must be somewhat balanced to avoid the soviets to avoid the temptation of the red button. Fear to a nuclear escalation is one point. But something must cause them the impression that a victory (or a draw) is possible without the use of the nuclear alternative. Some alternatives have yet been posted here. Dispersion of the US carriers to protect the supply lines is a good point. I liked the option posted by Stilleto, too.

I will suggest one more possible way to complicate NATO options. An accident similar to the one suffered by the USS Forrestal in 1967 while in the Gulf of Tonkin. Link here:

Enough to eliminate one carrier from the equation.
