USS Nimitz (CVN-68) is a supercarrier in the United States Navy, one of the largest warships in the world. She was laid down, launched and commissioned on 30 June 1975. The carrier was named for World War II Pacific fleet commander Chester W. Nimitz, who was the Navy’s last fleet admiral. The Nimitz is 332.8 metres long and has a displacement of 100,000 long tons, and is capable of 32.5 knots.
The model is NOT drivable, it is a static scenery item, with attached track for parking, landing and takeoff of aircraft. Additional track is placed in Surveyor to join with the attached track, so aircraft can navigate around the deck – in Surveyor click the ? on the carrier for information on using the model.
A tractor for deck operation is available to park the aircraft. The model allows the operation of my F-14 Tomcat, FA-18 Hornet, V-22 Osprey, E2D Hawkey and various helicopters. The aircraft have tail hooks and animation to enable realistic takeoff and landing on the carrier model.
