This is a list of escort aircraft carriers of the United States Navy . For classes, see list of aircraft carrier classes of the United States Navy .

Note that many of the lower-numbered carriers were transferred to the Royal Navy , where they received new names. For instance, USS  Breton  (CVE-10) became HMS  Chaser  (D32) . The new names are mentioned in each article individually.

Aircraft carriers today are usually divided into the following four categories based on the way that aircraft take off and land:

Several systems of identification symbol for aircraft carriers and related types of ship have been used. These include the pennant numbers used by the British Royal Navy and some Commonwealth countries, the US hull classification symbols also used by NATO and some other countries, [9] and the Canadian hull classification symbols .

Lacking the firepower of other warships, carriers by themselves are considered vulnerable to attack by other ships, aircraft, submarines, or missiles. Therefore, an aircraft carrier is generally accompanied by a number of other ships to provide protection for the relatively unwieldy carrier, to carry supplies and perform other support services, and to provide additional offensive capabilities. The resulting group of ships is often termed a battle group, carrier group, carrier battle group or carrier strike group .
