Carrier Strike Force continues the excitement of aircraft carrier operations. With five previous release of our world-reknown Flight Deck Series we have the know-how and experience to bring you the excitement of aircraft carrier-based flight.
Carrier Strike Force incorporates the same new technology found in our bestselling Flight Deck 5 package. You'll operate from moving aircraft carriers with super accurate catapult launch and recovery system*. You'll experience the thrill of authentic deck operations with AI traffic on and above the carrier. You'll see why cable recovery on the short flight deck is both thrilling and nerve-wracking. (*Moving carrier, catapult/recovery operations using 3WireX, missions and mini-missions available for FSX only; Static carrier, simplified catapult/recovery operations and 200 pre-saved flghts for FS2004.)
Highlights of Carrier Strike Force (FSX version)

You'll take the seat in new aircraft and fly from three new carriers:
USS Bonhomme Richard
Charles de Gaulle (French)
HMS Illustrious (British)
The carriers are positioned near these locations:
South America coast
The powerful catapult gets your mighty Rafale M airborne from the deck of the Charles de Gaulle in just a few hundred feet. You'll want your tailhook to catch the steel cable during recovery to bring your muscular aircraft to a screeching halt. Fly the new F-35 JSF and the Harrier in vertical flight from the HMS Illustrious and USS Bonhomme Richard.
For this add-on you'll fly these powerful aircraft:
F-35C Lightning II Joint Strike FighterTM
