Invincible Class Aircraft Carrier

Invincible Class Aircraft Carrier

(CV R05)

United Kingdom

CV R05 HMS Invincible
CV R06 HMS Illustrious
CV R07 HMS Ark Royal

 

The Invincible Class aircraft carrier is the primary CV for the nation which started the class in the beginning.  Unlike the super carriers, these smaller craft carry a smaller air wing, and use the Harrier, which is the reason for the 'ski ramp' take off ramp.  Harriers normally need a short assisted take off, which the ramp provides.

 Built in 2002 - 2004, these new aircraft carriers are designed for the JSF, and new harriers.  They feature an angled ramp, which has the ability to be raised, ski-jump style for short take off fighters.  The ships are state of the art, featuring fully integrated C&C operations rooms and communications.

Note:  These are only available in extended Twilight campaigns (including Twilight: 2005, and the like).
