The Atlas has no attack power and it doesn't have large cargo holds. The great advantage of this ship is that it's the only aircraft carrier the player can build. It can hold 2 Choppers or 1 Hawk. It is able to repair them, and to refuel them if the Atlas is carrying Kerosene in its cargo. It is also able to repair other units in its influence area, like a mobile Repair Dock.
When an aircraft is taking off or landing on the Atlas, the ship can not be controlled by the player, making it vulnerable if there are any enemy units around. This will, however, last only for a few seconds, and you will regain full control of the Atlas as soon as the aircraft has completed the landing or take off maneuver.Note that the Atlas is the third most expensive unit in the game after the Orca and the Erebos.
- In the Ancient Greek mythology, Atlas was the titan who held up the sky. The Atlas' ability to hold aircraft may be a reference to that myth.
