An old chuyinka ship, first of the "lotus paradigm." The fleet carrier is a multi-purpose vessel that the chuyinka developed to transport large amounts of provisions and military hardware to any desired location on their home planet of Varanganska and the lunar colonies. When it was first developed, the fleet carrier was meant to keep entire continents living in fear, but the enemy's expertise with propaganda caused this tactic to backfire, leading directly to the Great Purge. In later centuries, as the threat of total planetary destruction loomed, carriers were packed with everything for the evacuation. At nearly 1000 metres long, they can carry large numbers of personnel comfortably and all sorts of equipment for both military and civilian use.
