Nimitz Tactical Strike

deadly fishes

Nimitz Tactical Strike is an intense and extremely immersive air-to-air combat scenario. Take off from the USS Nimitz and eliminate the enemy threat!

Best played with two or more players.

  • Intense Co-Op air-to-air action
  • Immersive radio audio clips from real-life air combat scenarios, Battlefield 3, Ace Combat, and more!
  • Fully working carrier functions; Towing, repair, refuel service menu, and more!
  • A living and breathing carrier environment complete with deck crew units and AI carrier take-offs every 5 minutes!
  • Convenient view settings menu to adjust your view distance to your liking.
  • Clean up script for destroyed vehicles.
  • Landing flight paths marked on your map and GPS for easy landing on carrier.
  • Much more for you to discover!

  • Installation:
    Extract the .pbo file(s) to your Steam/SteamApps/common/ArmA 3/MPMissions folder.

    Having trouble moving the planes on the deck? Equip your UAV terminal that you have on you, if not find some in the support boxes on the deck. Open the UAV terminal and then you can control any of the stompers on the deck!

    Want to double up in one of the two-seaters? You can! All of the two seater planes are unequiped, so make sure you load them up with weapons, especially the ALTFLIR targeting pod so the Weapons Officer can attack air units.

    Be mindful of your fuel. Using afterburners for an extended period of time will deplete fuel much faster. Make sure you have enough for the trip to and from the combat area.

    Going at it solo? It may be more frustrating doing it lone-wolf style. Play with your friends to help you out!

    Author's note:
    This is my very first mission I've ever created. It started out as a little project for me to learn how to use the editor then eventually turned out to be something fun. I hope everything works out alright, if anything seems to be wrong here, please let me know! You can e-mail me at: cerealzoloft07 @

    Known issues:
    - You may spawn in the water. Just respawn and you should respawn back on the carrier deck.

    - Does not work properly in single player scenario. Play in multiplayer LAN only if you wish to play alone.

    - AI planes that spawn and takeoff at the carrier every 8 minutes and loiter around right after. So after about an hour there will be several planes circling the carrier which may cause some issues. May update for less frequent takeoffs.

  • Changed loadouts of the planes on deck
  • You will now spawn with the UAV terminal.
  • Added training version for players new to flying in Arma 3
