The Siege Perilous class Atmospheric Attack Carrier serves as the Group Operational Commander for a PRG during battlegroup operations. The AAC primary combat role is to destroy hostile tactical aircraft and defensive stations on the ground. It ensures that the skies are clear for dropships and other endo/exo-atmospheric craft during beach-head establishment, provides close air support (CAS) for Lancers on the ground, and destroys hostile ground forces in the interdiction zone. In addition, the AAC provides air traffic control for the PRG and directs all High Guard movement onto the objective. Although it is nearly as large as an XMC, the space on board an AAC is devoted almost entirely to hangar space and crew quarters. As a result, the AAC has limited value as a non-combat support ship aside from directing ship-to-surface relief operations from other platforms.
