Spawned as a sidenote from Airborne Aircraft Carrier. This thing is an inter-service nightmare. The general premise seems to be "hey, these things are awesome, but what if we put them TOGETHER?" Ironically, this isn't limited to fiction, as many have actually been prototyped by the world's militaries. Examples include:
- Airborne Aircraft Carrier (obviously)
- Land Battleship: This is essentially what it sounds like. A massive rolling fortress with cannons and weapons galore. May be a hovercraft or have wheels or tank treads.
- Submersible Carrier
- Amphibious tanks aren't just tanks that can travel in water, but often are entirely submersible until they surface on the beach.
- The submersible jet fighter which can perform as well underwater as in the sky.
