Casablanca Class Escort Carrier - Crew 176, Length 482 Studs
About this creation
The Casablanca class of escort carriers are the largest fighter carriers on the current registry. The fleet carrier designation, along with the names of traditional fleet carriers, have been reserved for future use, if a military power should arise that warrants them. The Union of Planets currently operates only 6 escort carriers, mainly in flag operations where show of force is deemed important. With 4 embarked squadrons, totaling 32 fighters or interceptors, a single ship of this class can exert force over an entire star system (in the case of fighter squadrons) or a minor sector (in the case of FTL capable interceptor squadrons), replacing an entire battle group or destroyer squadron.
