Technology & Combat Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The largest and newest carrier in the Varauta Army fleet. Equipped with numerous anti-ship and anti-fighter weapons, the New Giant Carrier has the same firepower as a heavy cruiser. However, the New Giant Carrier's greatest asset is the capability to hold some two hundred variable fighters. These fighters are released from eight scramble catapults that can accommodate the launching of three fighters per catapult for a maximum of 24 simultaneous fighter launches. All variable fighters can be prepared and launched within twenty minutes.
