An example of a Supercarrier is renamonguy's 'Rapture' Seen in the backround above.

A supercarrier is a type of ship which is pretty much a massive dropship, capable of carrying fighters, troops, tanks, etc. THis may be done through the use of matter chips or simply by a large cargo hold.

Though, supercarriers are somewhat smaller than mass supercarriers. These are capable of of carrying massive structures, and captureing thousands of ships at a time.
