The Aircraft Carrier ("ACC") is a naval ship. Its armament is Dispensers, Cannons, Bombs and Torpedoes.
ACCs are one of the largest ships that players can build. It is also one of the ships able to launch combat aircraft (the other is the Zeppelin); Bombers and Fighters can move within a 2000 block radius of a piloted, friendly Aircraft Carrier, that is located in Wilderness.
The ship can also function as a mobile respawn point, by utilizing Crew signs.
More information: Direct Control - Naval Mode
ACCs will always cruise in the direction of their "front". If you try to cruise sideways, your ACC will move diagonally in that direction instead.
The "front" of the ACC is determined in two ways.
ACCs use the Naval Direct Control mode. Direct Control mode is superior to manual movement during combat.
