Two gun turrets
The Britannian Carrier-Battleship are the largest ships in the Britannian Navy and Flagships of the Fleet of the Holy Britannian Empire. One such ship was under the command of Princess Cornelia li Britannia during the Battle of Fukuoka Base and another was under the command of the Knight of Seven, Suzaku Kururugi.

It is shown as having a trimaran hull, with the outboard hulls supporting two flight decks. It's armament includes two twin gun turrets, a vertical missile system, and numerous CIWS turrets, along with a complement of Portman knightmares.
History[edit | edit source]
In 2017 a.t.b, the Fukuoka Military Base in Area 11 was occupied by Chinese Federation troops. Second Princess Cornelia li Britannia used a Carrier-Battleship as her command base and flagship. She attempted to utilize the carrier's aircraft and land troops, but was foiled by the tempest that the Chinese used to land undetected.
Later that year, the Britannian terrorist organization Wings of Talleyrand captured the Britannian Bermuda Island Base and the Hadrian, a Carrier-Battleship stationed there. While the Glinda Knights and the Homeland Defense Forces were occupied retaking the base, Lord Wilbur Millville led the main force, along with the Hadrian, to attack Pendragon. They were engaged by the Britannian Virginia Fleet under General Upson Thompson. His flagship was the Dreadnought-class Aircraft Carrier Brigantes, which was accompanied by at least five Carrier-Battleships. All ships were presumably heavily damaged after Milvile launched a huge wave of HEIAP (high-explosive incediary armour-piercing) missiles, which Upson failed to intercept.
In 2018 a.t.b, the Holy Britannian Empire was in open war with the E.U. A taskforce under Second Prince Schneizel el Britannia attempted to invade Italy from a beach, but was unsuccessful until Knight of Seven Suzaku Kururugi appeared and defeated the E.U. forces single-handedly. Prince Schenizel observed that battle from a Carrier-Battleship.
Later that year, Suzaku Kururugi mobilized a naval battle-group of 32 ships to entrap the Black Knight's Ikaruga, using a Carrier-Battleship as his flagship, as well as the launch platform for his Lancelot Conquista. In the ensuing battle, his ship is damaged when the water beneath it bubbled with methane hydrate, neutralizing the ship's buoyancy and capsizing the entire fleet, including the Carrier-Battleship, despite its stable trimaran construction.
