* In DaleBrown novels, although at first only single-use submunition-bearing (semi)autonomous cruise missiles are demonstrated, books from ''Air Battle Force'' onward show modified transport planes and bombers carrying mini Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles and, yes, the things ''do'' rejoin with their motherships for refueling and rearming while both are in flight.

* The ''Goliath'', and to a lesser extent the ''Tiger Moth'', from ''Anime/CastleInTheSky''.
** Although they are conceptionally very different: The ''Tiger Moth'' relies solely on its smaller aircrafts for combat whereas the ''Goliath'' is not shown to carry fighters but has enough guns and infantry on board to invade a small country (or ancient airborne city state).

''Anime/CastleInTheSky''. Although they are conceptionally very different: different.
** To explain:
The ''Tiger Moth'' technically fits the trope better, as it relies solely on its smaller aircrafts for combat combat, whereas the ''Goliath'' is not shown to carry fighters fighters, but fits the classic image of the trope better, as it has enough guns and infantry on board to invade a small country (or ancient airborne city state).

Flight has always fascinated humanity. First came legends of {{Winged Humanoid}}s and {{Floating Continent}}s, then eventually [[UsefulNotes/{{Airships}} airships]] and actual airplanes. When the aircraft carrier was invented, its [[RuleOfCool sheer awesome]] (and force projection) made the battleship a military relic[[note]]Although the potential weakness of the carrier vessel itself, should its air arm ever be somehow neutralized, has more than once induced the theorization of a [[Franchise/BattlestarGalactica carrier-battleship hybrid]][[/note]]. Considering this, is it any surprise that people have wanted to combine the awesome of the airplane, aircraft carrier, zeppelin and floating continent into one?
