Having trouble moving the planes on the deck? Equip your UAV terminal that you have on you, if not find some in the support boxes on the deck. Open the UAV terminal and then you can control any of the stompers on the deck!

Want to double up in one of the two-seaters? You can! All of the two seater planes are unequiped, so make sure you load them up with weapons, especially the ALTFLIR targeting pod so the Weapons Officer can attack air units.

Be mindful of your fuel. Using afterburners for an extended period of time will deplete fuel much faster. Make sure you have enough for the trip to and from the combat area.

Going at it solo? It may be more frustrating doing it lone-wolf style. Play with your friends to help you out!


Addons required to play:



USS Nimitz:

FUTARM: Maritime Units Pack:

F/A-18 Super Hornet:

F/A-18 Super Hornet RealSound: - Might cause errors. - Use this one instead if you are downloading manually.

---PlayWithSIX Users, just download it from the collection at the top.

SU-35S Flanker E:

MiG-29K Fulcrum-D:

F-15 Eagle/Strike Eagle:


Known common issues:

- You may spawn in the water. Just respawn and you should respawn back on the carrier deck.

- Does not work properly in single player scenario. Play in multiplayer LAN only if you wish to play alone.

- AI planes that spawn and takeoff at the carrier every 8 minutes and loiter around right after. So after about an hour there will be several planes circling the carrier which may cause some issues. May update for less frequent takeoffs.

**Used Nimitz Template by yoyoyo for some of the carrier scripts.

@TomusGilbert, the track is very fitting, though not everyone might want that experience you know? The links are already up on the descriptions, but in shortened form. Thanks for helping out.

Hey man,
Absolutely amazing, by far one of the best missions I've ever played! :)

For you guys who can't find the links to the Ivory jets and sound (F/A 18) mods, here is the link to them:

Also deadly fishes, I think this mission would be incredible (don't get me wrong, it already is ;D ) if you put in a music track after entering the cockpit! 'Bullet Train' by Stephen Swartz (feat. Joni Fatora) would really make this in a future update!
Much appreciated!

@deadly fishes Thanks for that, mew and my friend played the mission and it's one of the best we've played.

@Xenu, I fixed the links for you, I had to post them on my website since the author had them removed.

The Ivory aircrafts have been removed by the author, so this mission won't load, which is a shame because it looks pretty fun. Can anyone help me with this?

Hey deadly fishes how did you get the AI to take off from the carrier off of the catapults?

Hello everyone,
If you are looking for a great tactical community to play with that is based around the USS Nimitz, then check out the Carrier Strike Group 11 ( ) for a wonderful community. There are a variety of different roles you can fulfill such:
Fighter pilot: Fighter pilots control the skies above and keep the carrier as well as ground troops safe.

Deck Crew: The deck crew is responsible for running and maintaining the USS Nimitz flight deck. They keep the deck operational and safe.

13th MEU: The 13th MEU is a Marine Battalion that is deployed with the Carrier Strike Group 11. Marines launch amphibious operations in conjunction with the US Navy, and execute a large array of ground missions.

If any of this interests you, please check out our website at

We can’t wait to welcome you aboard!
