Why US Navy Retire the $9.7 Billion USS Nimitz Aircraft Carrier

US Navy

USS Nimitz (CVN-68) is an aircraft carrier of the United States Navy (USN), and the lead ship of her class. She is one of the largest warships and the oldest serving aircraft carrier in the world. She was laid down, launched, and commissioned as CVAN-68 “aircraft carrier, attack, nuclear powered”, but 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.
