Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Himalaya class aircraft carriers are based on an old Russian design, the Kiev class, and serve as the mainstay of the Earth Federation Forces' surface fleets, primarily for Don Escargot aircraft. With a maximum capacity of 30 aircraft, these large vessels are called "The Whale of the EF" by Zeon soldiers. During the One Year War, the extensive battles for Earth's seas see the construction of more than 10 of these large carriers, for operations around important coastal Federation installations such as Hawaii and Belfast.
