An Aircraft Carrier Airship that can be flown using the Movecraft Plugin for Minecraft. Everything works: the aircraft elevator, the guns, and the fighters themselves.

The Escort Carriers of the Silver Empire are built to exert control over a wide area by carrying dozens of fighters for a variety of missions from fighter screening to warship attack to ground assault. While they themselves are not heavily armed, the fighters they carry have significantly more offensive capability than any comparably sized traditional warship.

The Escort Carrier has a spacious hangar deck and a vast interior completely furnished for officers and crew. Also provided is significant storage space for carrying off the spoils of war.

Also included is one example of each of the 3 basic Silver Empire fighters: the Air Superiority Fighter, the Multi Role Fighter, and the Ground Assault Fighter.

6 x Repeating fireball cannons on each side
