The Carrier(Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict) or Naval Unit that can carry two air units. This makes them similar to cruisers, but unlike cruisers, Aircraft Carriers can carry both helicopters and planes. It can produce Seaplanes, repair air units on board, and the provide support with a very weak anti-aircraft cannon. Carriers are capable of carrying and supplying Air Units.(失われた光) is a special
Carriers are initially introduced and become buildable in Greyfield Strikes.
Changes from Dual Strike
- Cost (30000G -> 28000G)
- Indirect attack -> Direct attack
- Carriers make for effective support vessels for any naval fleet especially in maps where there are very little airports or temporary airfields available and large swathes of water.
- In an attempt to return Carriers to their true role as support vessels, the SAM aramanent was replaced with a weaker AA gun battery. This changes it from an indirect role to a direct role, reducing the Carriers survivability. This isn't meant to deter from its use. An advantage given to the Carrier now is its ability to literally create Seaplanes at a cost of 15000. This means that in maps where there are no airports at all, Carriers are the only unit able to provide air support. Additionally, in this version of the series, they are capable of not only resupplying but also repairing Air Units they carry and allowing stationed Air Units to take off performing a normal move, instead of the Carrier having to manually drop them and ending its turn.
- Commanders skilled with Carriers can transport and use air units anywhere this this unit allows them to make mobile airfields, thus resupply their air force.
- Carriers should be wary of enemy subs as they excel at sinking carriers.
- When facing carriers or carrier strike groups, it is advisable to use subs to sink them as well as cruisers and fighters to respond to any aerial threats they produce.
- A Carrier should never be used to carry helicopters; cruisers can fill that role, except if you have no other alternatives and the only air unit you can put in is the helicopter.
- Greyfield's CO Power allows carriers to produce more than four seaplanes in their lifetime.
- The Rubinelle (NRA and 12th Battalion) Carriers resemble the American Nimitz class carriers.
- The Lazurian Army and IDS Carriers resemble the Russian Admiral Kuznetsov class carriers.
- It is possible that because of the nature of aircraft carrier (having a runaway or rocket sleight) that air units can move and attack immediately after exiting the aircraft carrier.
- The carrier is the least pre-deployed unit in Days of Ruin, excluding the seaplane, with only two deploys total. The carrier can be found on A Hero's Farewell and Greyfield Strikes, with the latter being the only pre-deployed carrier the player ever has access to.
- Carriers have an unused graphic of them with a seaplane.
