The Ark Royal-class Scout Carriers are the smallest dedicated fighter carriers in the Earth Fleet.  They are designed for scouting operations, convoy escort, and providing fighter cover for small task forces.  It carries the equivalent armament of a Long Beach-class heavy cruiser, and eight fighter sqaudrons (a total of 96 starfighters).  It's equipped with a first-generation gravity drive that can generate jump points for hyperspace travel independent of jump gates (but cannot generate grav shields), and it must use its standard ion drive for normal-space maneuvering.
