Himalaya-class

The Himalaya-class was a line of aircraft carriers produced by the Earth Federation.

History

The Himalaya-class aircraft carriers were the mainstay of the Earth Federation naval fleets. The construction of more than ten such carriers during the One Year War in preparation for the battle for naval supremacy highlighted the importance of these ships.

Design

Each Himalaya-class aircraft carrier could support up to thirty aircrafts. The primary aircraft stationed on these carriers was the Don Escargot. The sheer size of the carriers led to them being nicknamed “The Whales of the Federation” by Principality of Zeon soldiers.

Behind the scenes

Kunio Okawara was the original mechanical designer.
