I know Illustrious used to have fixed wing but there seems to be a lot of confusion as to whether it is an aircraft carrier or not, is it a case that it is no longer suitable to modern fixed wings so we don't consider it an aircraft carrier anymore?
She fulfils the LPH role whilst Ocean is in refit as she is the closest thing we have but she is not a true LPH. Ocean is the RNs only Purpose built LPH capable of landing troops ashore by air and sea. It also has a vehicle deck and ramps in addition to the largest hangar in the Navy. Until QEC is commissioned Ocean is the largest ship in the Navy.
