When fully armed, the ship will carry at least 40 aircraft and be crewed by 1,000 sailors.
Known as Big Liz, the ship cost £3.1 billion and is first in a new class of state-of-the-art warships for Britain.
This morning, Daily Star Online witnessed her sail into her home port for the first time as the Royal Navy welcomed her to Portsmouth.
The warship is bristling with 30mm cannons and a number of miniguns to fend off enemies.
She also has Phalanx launchers designed to blast away any anti-ship missiles.
New fighter jets the F-35B Lightning II will be packed onto the ship, along with a host of chopper including Chinooks and Apaches.
