The Kilroy Class Aircraft Carrier is a new generation of supercarrier; the largest ever built. It is also the cleanest; as all 4 planned vessels will be running off bio-fuels. Kilroy himself proposed the construction of 4 Kilroy class boats to fit the Navy's requirements. When the Nimitz-Class nuclear-fusion powered aircraft carriers entered service; there were some saftey risks involved with its operation. Nuclear fusion was new; and it had not properly been tested yet; as it was rushed into service.

On her shakedown cruise prior to commissioning; The Kilroy underwent aircraft take-off and landing trials; as pilots needed to practice landing on the massive ship. The ship also underwent fire-trials; training her crew to use the main guns and AA artillery.
