An aircraft carrier is a warship designed with a primary mission of deploying and recovering aircraft, acting as a seagoing airbase. Aircraft carriers thus allow a naval force to project air power worldwide without having to depend on local bases for staging aircraft operations. They have evolved from wooden vessels used to deploy balloons into nuclear-powered warships that carry dozens of fixed wing and rotary-wing aircraft.

Aircraft carriers are typically the capital ship of a fleet, and are extremely expensive to build and important to protect. Of the ten nations that possess an aircraft carrier, seven possess only one. Twenty-one aircraft carriers are currently active throughout the world with the USN operating 11 as of June 20.

In the Battlefield series, the Aircraft Carrier is usually the spawn-point of a faction.

Battlefield 1942[]

"The AIRCRAFT CARRIER is close to supplanting the Battleship's supremacy on the high seas. With its brood of dive-bombers and fighters it can launch attacks outside of the Battleship's range. It can also protect itself from air attack. The LCVPs at the rear of the ship can be used to make beach landings."
