It's big and a flying cross between an aircraft carrier, variuos laboratories, a command centre and a painted target.

From this do you mean who actually serves on board a hellicarrier and how many people there are ?

A Helicarrier is large enough to launch B-52 Stratofortress bombers with little trouble, maintain several full nuclear silos, possess a large amount of defensive weaponary *the density of defenses is more akin to WW2 carriers than current ones* It's rather slow so that could be a big problem when flying over an Area with a large amount of SAM sites or Interceptors.   In fact, If I were in a helicarrier and we were about to pass overhead a area thick with Anti-Air defenses, I would look for the nearest exit because you really don't want to be that large and easy to target.    However they do tend to fly very high up, the problem is that because most use Helicopter blades, they can't fly too high up, most estimates place them as being barely more than a fourth of the weight of a Seaborne Carrier despite being massively larger *something I disagree with, no matter what it's made of it has to weigh more than Sea Carriers*

At least one Used Anti Gravity tech which was later taken over by Drones and at least one used Turbofan Jet Turbines.

Have any Helicarriers come under Anti Aircraft Fire?   And How well did they fare?  I forget.

I know it's good at making the Sentry look bad. I think it's really funny that for a while him not being able to lift a helicarrier was something people used to rank his power, and now it's come back again to make him look bad in new ways. Superman is weak against Kryptonite and Sentry/Void just can't handle helicarriers. I was curious about how much one weighs and how big they are. Feel like that info might be in a handbook somewhere, but I don't know where I'd find it.
