USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) is a modern American nuclear powered aircraft carrier. The keel for this unit was laid in 1975, the launch took place in March 1980, and the commissioning to the US Navy took place in 1982. The total length of the ship is 332.8 meters, the overall width is 76.8 meters, and the full displacement is about 92,000 tons. The maximum speed does not exceed 32-33 knots. The on-board armament currently consists of: two Sea Sparrow missile launchers, two RIM-116 launchers and three 20 mm Vulcan Phalanx CIWS sets. The aircraft carrier can take on board up to 90 aircraft of such types as, for example: F / A-18 Super Hornet, EA-18 Growler, E-2A Hawkeye or Sikorsky MH / SH-60.

USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) is one of the Nimitz-class aircraft carriers. The ships of this type - until the introduction of the Gerald Ford class units - were the largest ships in history. They were also the first nuclear-powered carrier class in the history of the US Navy. From the outset, they were planned as the backbone of the US Navy strike force, and were expected to work closely with other shielding ships, such as destroyers, frigates, and submarines. They are almost a symbol of the dominance of the US Navy in the seas and world assessments. One of the aircraft carriers of this class is the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70), which was built at Newport News Shipbuilding in Newport News, Virginia. Shortly after entering service, the unit set out on a voyage around the world, and in 1984 it took part in the international RIMPAC 84 maneuvers. In 1988, it took part in the last period of Operation Earnest Will in the Persian Gulf region. A few years later (in 1994), the carrier returned to this area to take part in Operation Southern Watch. In 2005-2009, the aircraft carrier underwent a major overhaul combined with the replacement of nuclear fuel. It is worth adding that in 2011 it was from the deck of the USS Carl Vinson that the remains of Osama ibn Laden were thrown into the sea. The individual is in active service.
