The Aircraft Carrier is the third military aircraft carrier to appear physically in a Grand Theft Auto game, the first being the LHD-069 in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and the second one the USS Luxington (ATT-16) in Grand Theft Auto Online. By scale the USS Luxington (ATT-16) is much smaller than this aircraft carrier.
It is strongly based on the Nimitz aircraft carrier class of the United States Navy. The ship carries a fleet of player 's personal aircrafts (small and medium size) and US Navy's aircrafts. The aircraft carrier also features Phalanx CIWS turrets and Missile RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile launchers similar to those found on U.S. Navy ships.
The ship is located about two kilometers away from the west or south coast of Los Santos. This location is random in each session
Players cannot buy personal ships: there is one huge aircraft with purchasable decks inside (like Arena Workshops)
Permissions for players who bought this property are similar with Fort Zancudo Hangars. They will automatically get limited access to the ship. Using weapon or damaging soldiers is also punishable. Another players cannot approach the aircraft carrier or they will get 4th wanted level and shot down with torpedoes or anti-aircraft missiles.
