The Attacker-class escort carrier is a British aircraft carrier.

DescriptionEdit

The Attacker-class was a subclass of the Bogue-class, a series of 45 escort carriers based on a merchant ship design and commissioned between 1942 and 1946. 31 of these ships were received by the Royal Navy under the Lend-Lease-Act, and the first batch of eight ships was called the "Attacker-class". They had space for a maximum of 28 fighters and bombers and proved to be excellent in their intended roles: to provide close air support to convoys and landing operations. No Attacker got lost in the fightings.

In Battlegroup42 there are two variants for the Attacker-class, which differ in their aircraft complement according to their intended role: An "escort" version with fighters and anti-submarine aircraft, and a "strike" version with fighters and bombers. For self-defense, the ship is armed with four twin Bofors 40mm guns and two 4"/50 caliber guns.

The aircraft carrier also has a "hidden" 7th position in the elevator station, which can be found towards the aft of the ship underneath the deck. It is used to lift the third aircraft to the deck level. Upon exiting this position, the player will appear on the deck level.

The Attacker-class can be found in 4205-Operation Ironclad and 4306-Operation Corkscrew.
