Carriers, more formally known as Fighter Carriers or Shuttle Carriers are a subtype of warship whose primary function in battle is to deliver its fighter compliment, as the structural and power requirements of its flight decks preclude the installation of Spinal Mounts or laser bays larger or more than 50 tubes.

On rare occasions, conventional warships have carried the CV Hull Designation due to the large numbers of fighters and/or small craft embarked, but this is not at all common.
