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 they are also sometimes used as the player's airfield during some 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.
