Just Flight has announced the Simworks Studios Nimitz Class Vol. 2 is now available for Prepar3D version4.5.

The second instalment features three highly detailed Nimitz Class carriers: Carl Vinson (CVN-70), Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). Each carrier comes with a complete air wing, animated arrestor cables and catapults.
