3X Missile Launchers
- "Deploy all units! CHARGE!!!"
- —Attack Carrier Captain
The Attack Carrier is a Venomian battleship that serves as the boss for Corneria in the original Star Fox and in Star Fox 64, and is one of few boss to directly appear in both games. In Star Fox, it is fought by Fox McCloud in two routes and Falco Lombardi in the third; in Star Fox 64, it approaches the Star Fox team from behind and tries to collide with Fox's Arwing. Fox is instructed by Peppy Hare to drop altitude to avoid it from happening.
DescriptionEditThe Attack Carrier is heavily armored and impervious to Laser fire and Smart Bombs. However, when it opens its hatches to release a salvo of missiles, Fox can shoot at the openings to break off the two large missile pods from the right of the ship and the large launch bay to the left of the ship, rendering it vulnerable to weapon fire. When its missile pods are destroyed, it fires lasers similar to Sarumarine's and dodges. The Attack Carrier in Star Fox 64 is the true source of enemy reinforcements invading Corneria City.
After managing to save Falco and move swiftly through arches in the waters of Corneria, Falco spotted the Attack Carrier flying beyond a waterfall, chasing after it. He alerted Fox and the rest of the team of his discovery, soon coming to an open ocean. Shortly after arriving at the ocean, the Attack Carrier surprised the team by attacking from behind, forcing them to drop their altitude. Quickly working together, they battled with the Venomian war machine, destroying its launch bay and missile pods. Defeating it, the Attack Carrier Pilot demanded to know their identities, declaring they would never defeat Andross as his ship plummeted into the ocean.
