Carriers are large warships dedicated to transporting gyrocopters and bombers. They are a new addition to the fleets of the Alliance and Horde and look very similar to the dreadnaughts of the Iron Horde, which were designed by Solog Roark.[1] Carriers started appearing after his defection, indicating that the shipwright also had a hand in creating the carrier design.

The Horde now has at least one on Azeroth, appearing near Nazmir when the Alliance leads an attack on the zone.

The commanders of Lunarfall and Frostwall can build carriers at their garrison shipyard. They are good against battleships and weak against submarines.
