In cooperation with the heavy hitting Battleship, the carrier is a key capital ship for the space fleet. It delivers a powerful strike using its Pacifier squadron. However, in the event of fleet actions, the CVI needs protection and will avoid close combat, for which it is ill-equipped.
Generally carriers to not operate alone and are not suited to anti-pirate or colonial protection duties.
