The Carrier serves as the home base for its numerous strike craft and can be upgraded to maximize its structural space for even more hangar bays. Although it is larger than a Battleship, most of the hull space is dedicated to launch and landing systems, leaving little room for anything more than a few weapons. It is highly recommended that it be protected by other warships.
