I have a question about the phrase "go at" here:
With 10 aircraft carrier groups, dozens of destroyers, 22 cruisers (nearest rival Russia has five) and a large modern submarine force, the US Navy rules the seas. This blue-water branch of the US military is run by more than 320,000 people and is also the owner of the largest warships in the world. The Nimitz-class aircraft carriers weigh around 100,000 tons each and along with their escorts can operate as “mini-navies”, giving the USA a practically unlimited strategic ability to project power in any of the world’s oceans and seas. Just one of these aircraft carriers could go at No.16 of the list of largest navies by tonnage, just ahead of the Royal Australian Navy at 98,426 tons.
I cannot find a definition of "go at" that fits this usage. What does it mean to "go at" a particular position on a list? Is it slang?
