USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) is a modern American nuclear powered aircraft carrier. The keel for this unit was laid in 1970, the launch took place in October 1975, and commissioning to the US Navy took place in 1977. 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 includes: 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 Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) 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 Eisenhower (CVN-69), which was built at Newport News Shipbuilding in Newport News, Virginia. The ship did not manage to take part in the Vietnam War (1964 / 1965-1975), and did not take part in the unsuccessful Orli Szpon operations of 1980, even though she was at the Indian Assessment at the time. In 1982, the unit operated off the shores of Lebanon in connection with the ongoing civil war in that country. Two years later, the ship took part in the celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary of the Allied landing in Normandy. USS Eisenhower insured American activities during the First Gulf War in 1990-1991. The aircraft carrier remains in active service, but it is expected to be withdrawn from the line around 2030.
