New to AP and have no idea how carriers work, can't find any tutorials online. If anyone could help out or point me in the right direction that would be awesome.

Carriers are just big freakin ships that dock fighters on them. Slightly less well armed and shielded than destroyers (in general). Docking is done same as you would to a station. They are probably the most expensive and difficult ships to fully equip if you factor in the fighters as part of the arming and equipping of the carrier.


that link is a breakdown of all the games carriers.

If you really want indepth carrier gameplay you need to get the CODEA mod... though you wont gain steam achievements using it cause of the modified tag.

CODEA lets hire you and train pilots who act like universe traders only they fly your fighters for you... the more experience they get the better they are at it *at the cost of credits per hour of flight*. It will also let you set up different wings more efficently. You can have some m5s designated at recon and when an enemy is spotted it will automatically send out your designated wings for intercept. It gives it a much more realistic carrier feel.
