USS Nimitz is a supercarrier of the United States Navy, and the lead ship of her class.

One of the largest warships in the world, she was laid down, launched, and commissioned as CVAN-68, "aircraft carrier, attack, nuclear powered."

She was later redesignated as CVN-68, "aircraft carrier, multi-mission, nuclear-powered," on 30 June 1975, as part of a fleet-wide realignment that year.
