[Editor's Note (May 2016): This will mark my second re-write of this article. Now that I've written a bunch of articles for this blog, I feel like I've developed a certain style and flow to how I write and I wanted to make all of them have that same feel across the series. Consider this the REFIT version of the original article.]
I always felt that the Earth Defense Force was seriously lacking in carrier capabilities. This ship was my attempt at getting a little over zealous with the whole battle carrier idea. This model was also the first time that I made up my own kitbash for the Space Battleship Yamato universe. all of my previous kitbashes were based off of other people's work and already existing ship designs.
