USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) is a modern American nuclear powered aircraft carrier. The keel for this unit was laid in 1981, the launch took place in March 1984, and the commissioning to the US Navy took place in 1986. 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: F / A-18 Super Hornet, EA-18 Growler, E-2A Hawkeye or Sikorsky MH / SH-60.

USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) 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 carriers of this class is the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), which was built at Newport News Shipbuilding in Newport News, Virginia. It is worth adding that compared to the previous units of its class, it has a better protection of the vital parts of the ship and was built - as the first of the Nimitz class - in a modular technique. Before it was accepted for service, the unit underwent very difficult and demanding sea tests, which included, among others, detonation of an explosive charge near the ship. USS T. Roosevelt took an active and significant part in the First Gulf War in 1990-1991. After the conflict ended, the ship remained in the area, and its on-board planes supervised the Iraqi side's compliance with the prohibition of flying over designated zones. In the period 1992-1995, the unit periodically served in the Mediterranean Sea, and its planes participated in the Deny Flight and Deliberate Force operations. In 2003, the carrier took part in the Gulf War II operation. The individual is currently in active service.
