So they made a fake ACC with fake planes and shot at it, weird.... What great practice they must get from this shooting at a floating rocknthat doesn't defend itself.

This isn't like honing your skill at sighting a gun. This is like shooting a bazooka at fake football stadium.

It’s propaganda.

But yes, if you are practicing you would do this. Your own Navy does this with old de-commissioned ships and target drones. The fact that they built a mock up of a US carrier, that is the propaganda part.

(CSG) is an operational formation of both the Royal Navy and the United States Navy. It is composed of roughly 7,500 personnel, an aircraft carrier, at least one cruiser, a destroyer squadron of at least two destroyers or frigates,[2] and a carrier air wing of 65 to 70 aircraft. A carrier strike group also, on occasion, includes submarines, attached logistics ships and a supply ship. The carrier strike group commander operationally reports to the commander of the numbered fleet, who is operationally responsible for the area of waters in which the carrier strike group is operating.
