The Ranger class Escort Carrier is a very light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Designed to carry a pair of fighter squadrons this pocket carrier is used as a tiny flag ship for small escort flotillas. Deceptively quick and agile, the dispersed hulls tend to be fragile. It hides behind a single heavy sand caster battery and tends to slink off when pursued. These fighters squadrons are most effective providing CAS to Katowice ground forces. The heavy fighters are built to take punishment and excel at long range tank busting. The fighters are dual-environment and streamlined for effective atmospheric work.
