Colossus Commemorative Flag
In 1946, Colossus was loaned to France and renamed Arromanches. Five years later, the ship was finally transferred to the French Navy under this name. The carrier got her new name from the commune of Arromanches-les-Bains in the Lower Normandy region of France.

Key Features

  • Lead Ship: Intermediate link between high-speed attack aircraft carriers and low-speed escort aircraft carriers, built in the UK during World War II.
  • Armed Squadrons: Equipped with three types of squadrons:
    • Attack Aircraft: With AP rockets for good armor penetration and damage.
    • Torpedo Bombers: Good health pool but low speed, with 2 attacking flights of three aircraft each.
    • Bombers: Drop HE bombs in level flight, carrying many bombs but with a large spread ellipse.
  • Carrier Mobility: Low speed, making it difficult to quickly change position.
  • Armament and Defense: Lacks secondary armament and has weak air defense.
