The Nimitz is a unique Carrier with some of the only Turret-equipped Fighters in the game.

Description

The Nimitz is a Fighter-based Carrier carrying three different fighter variants; the V-22 OSPREY - H, the F-18 and the V-22 OSPREY - S. It has a fairly large amount of health. The Nimitz has a large range of accurate Turrets for hunting down small ships or while standing ground to cover a retreat or allow time for Fighter pilots to arrive.

Interior

The Nimitz has a large interior spanning 4 decks, and has the largest interior of any ship within the game.

Cargo Deck

The cargo deck has many large cargo containers in red and green, as well as a crane attached to the ceiling which would supposedly move the containers. 3 Hangars are accessible via the cargo deck, as well as a long corridor which can found next to the entrance to the cargo deck. At the far end of the cargo deck is a window which can be used to view out of the front of the ship.

Fighter Deck

The fighter deck holds 11 F-18 fighters, as well as 1 V-22 Osprey - H (hull) and V-22 Osprey - S (shield) fighters. It is on the surface of the ship, which has aircraft carrier - like patterns on it.

Bridge and Crew Habitation

You can get to the bridge in several ways. There is a teleporter immediately at the entrance to the ship which leads directly to the pilot seat. There is also a large hallway leading from the upper fighter deck which connects to the main corridor area. The Bridge has a large circular hologram, which users can walk around to get to the pilot seat. There is also a holographic table and the ship's gravity generator. Upon entering the bridge, turning right will lead you to the crew habitation area. This has a table for the crew as well as 8 beds for the crew and fighter pilots.

Advantages

  • 55% Damage resistance which is 5% more than most ships/carriers.
  • Balanced firepower and accuracy in both the Carrier itself and its Fighters.
  • Accurate Turrets.
  • Variety of powerful Fighters.
  • Large amount of powerful Fighters gives it incredible damage potential, especially if they are AI Fighters.
  • Extremely high acceleration for it's class.
  • Relatively large nuke.

Disadvantages

  • Large blind spots near the sides and under the ship.
  • Not much in firepower against larger Ships like Dreadnoughts.
  • No Spinals.
  • Sacrifices firepower for Fighters.
  • Not very good at Sieging or attacking other ships without teammates or AI to pilot the Fighters.
  • The amount of Fighters might be unnecessary as you need enough players or AI to pilot them.
  • Unused fighters are exposed to fire from enemies, allowing them to be destroyed before taking off.
  • Unable to fire all Turrets at once, as a result of a turret being partially inside the ship (and the line of sight for that turret is blocked also).
  • Low health.
  • VERY high cost to equip all fighters with AI pilots, costing 3250 robux in total without VIP.

Strategy

  • Make sure your team uses the Fighters against the same target.
  • The runway can be used to easily land and regroup Fighters without recalling them, or for a Fighter to flee from a small ship, as the Nimitz destroys the other ship.
  • Use your high accuracy Turrets to defend yourself and your Fighters from smaller ships.
  • Fighters can block spinals and protect your carrier from blind spots.
  • Pre-organize a group of players large enough to utilize most of the fighters on the Nimitz prior to spawning it, such as over a discord call or community group. A coordinated team gathered into the Nimitz fighters can create a swarm capable of demolishing virtually any opponent, even Ships like Dreadnoughts and Super Capitals.
  • Warp in, release all your fighters and warp out as soon as you can.
