SimWorks Nimitz Class Vol.1, Released

SimWorks Studios had released Nimitz Class Vol.1 for Prepar3D V4.5. According to the product description, the package “…allows you to immerse yourself in carrier ops, giving you the first two ships of the Nimitz class, modelled in stunning detail. From the shooter launching you off the catapult to catching the 3-wire on a pitching deck, from walking through the hangar to arranging aircraft like a deck handler, the SWS Nimitz & Ike allow you to experience carrier ops with a level of immersion hitherto unavailable!”

Moreover, as a matter of the interest, the package includes the first true carrier-based AI helicopter for P3D.
