USS Lexington (USSL) was a static aircraft carrier located in the 'Terric' region of north-eastern Satori. On the shore beside the carrier was the SL Marines Training Center - Camp Del Mar.

Background

On 29th December 2014, it was announced that the Terric region's previous tenant - the USS Nimitz and its naval air station would be relocating to a new facility (N.A.S Pompelmoo) on southern Nautilus' Bingo Strait. Following the station's closure, the 'Terric' region did not remain unoccupied and was immediately transferred to the Second Life Marines group, who constructed their training center, Camp Del Mar and replaced the Nimitz with an identical carrier, the USS Lexington. The Lexington was equipped with one primary runway and three military catapults designed to launch aircraft at high speed on a short take-off. Under the flight-deck was a large hangar/work-shop (accessible via cargo elevators), a galley, offices and crew quarters. In addition, a selection of aviation-related vendors were available inside the carrier's island (control tower). The facility ceased operating in June 2015, with the announcement that a newly redesigned USS Nimitz would be returning to the 'Terric' region.
