Warship Wednesday–Carriers

Standard

CARRIERS (CV)

Confederation Fleet carriers are commonly known as “The Fist of the Fleet.”  Typically carrying 3-5 squadrons of Starfighters, usually escorted by an additional capital ship or formed into strike groups of 2-3 “flattops,” modern supercarriers are capable of laying waste to entire star systems by themselves.  All carriers are horrifically vulnerable during their launch and recovery stages due to the limitations of their catamaran hulls and typically do not carry extensive offensive missile or secondary batteries (see “that’s what the escorts are for”).  Carriers are named for old carriers, battles, and vessels in history and science fiction.
