The MacAllan-Class Carrier is a starship classification created by the Frontier Militia. It's namesake - and first ship of the line - is the MCS James MacAllan, itself named after the Militia war hero James MacAllan.
The MacAllan-Class is the only known type of vessel to be designed from the ground-up by the Militia (Excluding converted civilian vessels such as Annapolis). The class is named after James MacAllan, who died in The Battle of Demeter to help achieve Militia victory.
At some point, several MacAllans were involved in Operation Broadsword, a Militia campaign to destroy the IMC's research facilities on Typhon. The invasion was a disaster and many MacAllans were destroyed, including the MCS James MacAllan.
After the reactivation of an IMC Interstellar Beacon by Jack Cooper, several MacAllans were brought in to reinforce the existing Militia troops on the planet. These vessels would eventually drop in Titans in an assault on the planet, before being involved in the pursuit of the IMS Draconis. In the air battle, the MCS Carter Braxton would be destroyed.
As a carrier, the MacAllan's main job is the transportation of personnel, equipment and supplies to support an invasion. This includes a dedicated Titan bay, used for dropping Titans into battle, sim-pods for training of infantry while in transit and other amenities.
Curiously, the bridge of the MCS James MacAllan (And presumably the line as a whole) is exactly the same as that of the IMS Malta. This could possibly indicate that the MacAllan class isn't wholly designed by the Militia, and they still use salvage from IMC vessels.
