Ship Model US NIMITZ CVN-68 1975
USS Nimitz (CVN-68) Largely completed in 1973, USS Nimitz was not commissioned until 1975 due to the late delivery of critical components for her nuclear power plant.
In 1975, Nimitz joined the Atlantic Fleet, ending the Enterprise's reign as the world's largest warship.
The carrier's cockpit is generally the same as that of the Kitty Hawk, but the forward cockpit of the John F.
Kennedy was cut for the first time.
Between 1975 and 1985, Nimitz made numerous cruises in the Atlantic and Mediterranean.
In the Indian Ocean, she served as the naval base for the aborted hostage rescue mission in Tehran, Operation Eagle Claw.
Early in the 1981 Mediterranean cruise, the F-14 made its air combat debut when two Nimitz VF-41 Tomcats shot down two Libyan Sukhoi su-22s on attack.
In 1987, Nimitz moved from the Atlantic Fleet to the Pacific Fleet, boarding the 9th Air Wing that was previously attached to the USS Kitty Hawk.
Due to a shortage of F-14Bs, Nimitz's two Tomcat units reverted to the F-14A in early 1992.
