Guantánamo Stealth Carrier (CV/CVR)


  • Government: United Nations, New United Nations
  • Ship Type: Carriers

This ship is derived from the first ARMD class carriers and is also known as Advanced-ARMD class. Unlike the first ARMD class, it is capable of folding by itself. Due to their inexpensive cost, ships of the same type were deployed in massive numbers as the main-force carrier of colonization fleets. As the main aircraft carrier of the New UN Forces, it is the standard stealth space aircraft carrier which was suited for mass production due to its simple hull construction.
