** In ''VideoGame/HomeworldDesertsOfKharak'' carriers have production facilities that can construct new LAVs and aircraft from salvage.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}} II'', the mothership, shipyard, and carrier classes are able to manufacture smaller vessels, and battlecruisers can repair fighters. There are also mobile refineries, which extract usable elements from ore brought in by AsteroidMiners.

In later missions the Mothership builds carriers with their own factories to supplement its own.
