Aircraft carriers are special naval warships that can house aircraft and feature a flight deck for aircraft to take-off or land.
Aircraft carriers are essentially floating airfields, capable of launching aircraft to attack enemy targets from safe distances. In Ace Combat games, various carriers, both friendly and enemy, are occasionally encountered and are also sometimes used as the player's airfield during certain missions.
Aircraft carriers are used by a number of navies, most notably by the Osean Maritime Defense Force, which is known to have operated a relatively large number of them. Other navies that are known to have used carriers include the Yuktobanian Navy, the Federal Erusian Navy and the Belkan Navy.
The most common classes encountered are the Nimitz-class, the Kitty Hawk-class and the Admiral Kuznetzov-class.

During the New Russian Federation uprising, the Russian Navy's aircraft carrier in the Black Sea was seized by the New Russian Federation along with many other ships. It was later sunk by Task Force 108 and Russian Loyalists during an operation to rescue the Russian Prime Minister, who was being held hostage by the fleet.
The United Nations Forces had at least one aircraft carrier
The USEA Federation acquired a number of aircraft carriers during their uprising, either from Wernher and Noah Enterprises or from nations that supported the group. They were most often seen supporting forces away from the Eurasian Continent. During Operation Eternal Liberation, the group would deploy no less than four in its attempt to seize or destroy Comona Base in the West Indies.
