This aircraft carrier airship uses Movecraft to fly, although the AA fire guns work using just redstone so you can use those even without the plugin. Everything works, the armored hangar deck doors, the fighters and their weaponry, and of course the airship itself. 

Background

The Advanced Escort Carrier made it's appearance towards the end of the War of Acquisition, when the tides had turned against the Silver Empire. Gone were the days when the Empire could terrorize a city and sieze Signatories at will. Accordingly, these newest carriers had no Signator storage, and few other frills of any kind. The living quarters were basic, but functional. In exchange, the fighter capacity was increased and the overall size decreased. The resulting carrier was smaller, faster, and carried a larger compliment of aircraft than previous models.

Additionally, their fighter compliment tended to focus heavily on air superiority and warship interception aircraft. They rarely carried bombers or ground attack fighters, a concession to the realities of the time. Finally, the armored doors from the Fleet Carriers were carried over into this smaller design, allowing it to deliver aircraft under fire if necessary, and gave it an extremely rapid fighter deployment capability unrivaled by any other carrier type.

In parallel with the rollout of the Advanced Escort Carriers, the Silver Empire also began fielding their new Advanced Interceptors. These suprisingly manuevreable fighters carried 4 x 3M torpedoes, double the capacity of most aircraft of the day.

Carrier Armament

24 x AA guns, 12 along each side in a dense overlapping pattern. Controlled with the lever on either side of the navigation bridge

Hangar Capacity

21 - 27 aircraft, depending on type. The download includes the following fighters:
6 x Air Superiority Fighters - Light and nimble dogfighters. Armed with 3 x auto fire guns.
5 x Armored Interceptors - Slow but well armored fighters for attacking warships. Armed with 2 x 3M torpedoes and 3 x auto fire guns
10 x Advanced Interceptors - Heavily armed fighters carring 4 x 3M torpedoes and 3 x auto fire guns

Btw rather than most of baccarat ships, this one actually was inspired by jack rather than bacca's ships inspiring other people. How ironic.
