USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63) was an American classic-propelled aircraft carrier. The keel for this unit was laid in 1956, the launch took place in May 1960, and the commissioning to the US Navy took place in 1961. The total length of the ship was 323 meters, the overall width was 86 meters, and her displacement was about 84,000 tons. The maximum speed did not exceed 33 knots. The on-board armament initially consisted of Terrier rocket launchers (later replaced by Sea Sparrow launchers, and later - by RIM-116 launchers) and up to 4 sets of Vulcan Phalanx CIWS cal. 20 mm. The aircraft carrier could take up to 85-90 aircraft on board.

The USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63) was the lead ship of the carrier class of the same name - Kitty Hawk. The ships of this type were essentially a modernized version of the Forrestal ships. The main changes concerned the enlargement of ships, changes to the layout of the airlifts and the flight deck. The USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63) was built at New York Shipbuilding. Shortly after entering service, the carrier was directed to the Pacific and assigned to the United States' 7th Fleet. In the years 1962-1964, the unit courteously visited the ports of Japan and the Philippines. Since 1965, the USS Kitty Hawk on-board aircraft attacked targets in North Vietnam during the Vietnam War. In 1980, the unit underwent modernization and extended service life under the SLEP program. Four years later (1984), there was a collision between the aircraft carrier and a Soviet Victor-class submarine. Ultimately, the USS Kitty Hawk was decommissioned in 2009.
