Arkilian Strategic Aircraft Carrier, Ecarlard by Waffle0708 Arkilian Strategic Aircraft Carrier, Ecarlard by Waffle0708
One of the biggest Arkilian aerial ship built as a multipurpose aircraft carrier. The pride of Arkilian aerial fleet.

Unique point of this ship is it's 2 flight decks. Due to the bad balance caused by 2 decks, main deck is placed to starboard.
These 2 decks can let her launch and land planes at once.

This picture show the recon plane and Ecarlard which is preparing launch.

You have quite the interesting ship and airplanes designs. But you should give the backgrounds a bit more love.

I love this dual deck design. And I like the fact that she has Imperial Japanese carrier like lines. A well one design and a great gallery. This pic has a graceful "manta" airship along side the carrier what is it?

This is way beyond awesome. Sleekest looking airship I've ever seen. Though it may be hard to land on because of turbulence from these huge propellers :D

Love the fighter design as well!

An fantastic picture! The aircraft carrier seem to have almost no armor but thats actually reallistic because this thing isnt made for direct attacking, or? Also it should always fly with a fleet that protects it.

Exactly! ;)
I think there are some small ships that have many low-tech AA guns around the carrier.

Pilots trying to land on the second deck would probably have problems with the wonkey airflow along the side of the ship.  Also, launching planes from an airship should be pretty easy.  Start the engine and push them over the side, right?  All that said, this is a very cool design.  I'm digging the "wet bow", reminiscent of some of the Japanese aircraft carriers in WWII.

I god exactly same comment in another website! X)
and as you say, it is easy for launching. basically they don't use wing. they use flying organ to fly. easy work.
But in this world, there is so many jet streams around this planet, like ocean waves on earth and they need to catch it to fly fast. :)

I am not sure what is wet bow, but I can guess! :/
and I was inspired by IJN carriers. :D

A "Wet Bow" is a bow that lets water in under the flight deck in rough seas (so like many of the IJN ships).  The other way carriers usually get built is with a "Hurricane Bow", where the flight deck solidly connects with the bow, leaving no opening for sea water.

Oh I see! Now I got new 2 words about ships. :D
it is so interesting to see each countries' ships. Like ethnic art, each ships (and tanks, planes...) have interesting points.

An image which calls out for more images.  Looks like a gorgeously complex ship.

I love the idea, and I hope it will be in your film.

 

Which reminds me, I recently started watching Last Exile and so far I'm really enjoying it.

Well both of them are awesome though!

The first series. I think it's best to watch a new series right from the beginning since that's usually where a lot of history and character development goes on.
