The second installment in SimWorks Studios' Nimitz Class series, Volume 2 features three highly detailed Nimitz Class carriers: Carl Vinson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. CVN-70, CVN-71 and CVN-72 are modelled in immaculate detail and illustrate the visual differences between earlier ships of the class and their newer sisters, such as different hangars, hull, island and masts.

Packed with custom animations and features, the SWS Nimitz has something for everyone! Animated shooters will launching you off the deck while the AI plane guard keeps watch. A pitching deck will keep you on your toes before catching the animated 3-wire! Or you can just stay on the ship to manage the 70+ strong air wing and tinker with its many animations and realistic light systems!

Highlights include:

  • High quality models of CVN-70 (2017), CVN-71 (2017) and CVN-72 (2019) with their different layouts modelled
  • Complete air wing for each carrier, which can be placed using the Dynamic Deck Editor
  • Fully animated carriers - raise the catapult bubbles and LSO platform, control the elevators hangar and fire doors, UNREP poles
  • Animated arrestor cables
  • Animated catapult JBDs, shuttles and steam
  • Simulated IFLOLS and MOVLAS which can be placed on multiple stations
  • AI MH-60R plane guard helicopter which launches and lands on deck
  • Automatic or manual control over nine separate ship lighting systems
  • Carriers Extended v2.0 features:
     - SWS Fleet Placer allows placement of fleets anywhere with a few clicks
     - Create any deck state you want using the Deck Configuration gauge
     - Animated arrestor cables

Included in the package are three ships of the Nimitz Class: CVN-70 Carl Vinson, CVN-71 Theodore Roosevelt and CVN-72 Abraham Lincoln. We have implemented new modelling techniques to allow for meticulous intricacy without sacrificing performance.

All ships feature a highly detailed flight deck. From the anti-skid texture to the crowded catwalks, from marking of water stations to the instructions on the life rafts, no detail has been spared.

Two different hangar deck layouts have been modelled to represent the differences between the carriers. A high level of detail has been maintained in the hangars, allowing you to explore them in an avatar without loss of detail or performance!

Additionally, a full assortment of highly detailed aircraft, vehicles and crew are included with the Nimitz, providing great detail from up close, but also highly optimised for performance!


Debuting on the Nimitz is our deck configuration technology. Allowing you to get in the shoes of a handler, place crew, vehicles and aircraft from any squadron, anywhere on the ship’s decks in real time, as well as save your custom deck states at will. Experience what it’s like to be a deck handler, trying to squeeze 70+ aircraft in the ship without fouling the decks.


In another first for SWS, an AI guard helicopter is included as a free bonus with the Nimitz! Launch the MH-60 plane guard and watch it take off, fly out and orbit near the carrier on plane guard duty. After flight ops are finished, call the helicopter back and watch as it guides itself to land on one of the available helipads.


An AI system handles the ship’s systems depending on whether it’s in the launch or recovery state. The AI also controls the ship's lighting based on the time of day and prevailing weather conditions. You can, of course, take over control of the ship’s system at any time and handle things yourself!


Crew are no longer statues and don't appear out of context! A robust system allows us to spawn animated objects on the ship according to the selected operational state. Shooters AND LSOs are the first animated objects finding their way onto the carriers, with more coming as the technology evolves.

Of course, our tow truck system from USS Midway makes a reappearance for those that don’t fancy taxIing and prefer to tow their aircraft in place.


Expanding on our previous implementation of TACAN, CEX carriers now come equipped with an ILS system and SPN-41 ICLS and SPN-42 PALS (requires aircraft-side integration). Furthermore, accurate simulation of the visual landing aids such as IFLOLS and LRLS is now possible, accounting for ship motion and hook-to-eye corrections.

Our visual landing aids (IFLOLS and LRLS) are simulated with a fidelity second to none. The IFLOLS can be set for a glideslope of 3.5, 3.75, or 4.0 degrees, compensating for aircraft size (hook-to-eye) by rolling the light-box just like the real thing, and has three stabilisation modes (point, line, and inertial) with realistic lag and limits. To top it off, you can set up MOVLAS at three separate stations!

  • Quad Core Processor at 3.0GHz or better (3.6GHz+ recommended)
  • 8GB RAM (16GB recommended)
  • 4GB DirectX 11 GPU or better (8GB recommended)
