Aircraft carrier of the Royal Thai Navy

The Chakri Naruebet (Thai จักรีนฤเบศร) is flagship of the Royal Thai Navy, Thailand's first and only aircraft carrier.

It is based on the Spanish carrier Principe de Asturias and was built in Ferrol, Spain, by Spanish shipbuilders Izar (EN Bazan) between 1994-1996.

It was delivered to Thailand in 1997. The carrier's main role is Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) surveillance and search and rescue. Moreover, the ship has participated in training, and in disaster relief after the 2004 tsunami.

It is the smallest serving aircraft carrier in the world.
