The CVN-99 Asuka II was an aircraft carrier used by the U.N. Navy. Originally constructed as a conventionally powered vessel with Japan’s Self-Defense Force, the Asuka II was transferred to the U.N. Navy after Japan joined the world government. The ship was then completed as a nuclear-powered vessel and put into service. In September 2008, the Asuka II participated in combat against the Anti-U.N. at the South Pacific island of Mayan in what was later known as the Bird Human Incident.
