Assault Carriers are a relatively new development (hull size 14-17). Assault carriers serve as mobile bases for fighter squadrons. A carrier transports fighters to the scene of a battle, and recovers and re-arms fighters that survive the battle. Because of the large amount of maintenance required by fighters, an assault carrier carries 300 to 400 crew members. Most carriers have a complement of 5 to 8 fighter elements, but some of the largest can carry 12 or more. Although they are not fast or maneuverable, an assault carrier can make 3 to 12 jumps before needing an engine overhaul, depending on the size of its engines.
