The CVX is a new class of aircraft carrier currently under development for the South Korean Navy. The planned development of the class was formally announced and funded as part of the 2020~2024 Mid-Term Defense Plan, published in December 2020.

The South Korean Ministry of National Defense confirmed in August 2020 that twenty F-35Bs would be procured for the CVX. In terms of rotary wing aviation, the ship will accommodate the future Marine Attack Helicopters of the ROK Marine Corps.

The new aircraft carrier will have a length of 263 m, a wide of 46.6 m, and a displacement of 45,000 tons. Se will have the capability to reach a top speed of 27 knots (50 km/h). The ship will be able to carry up to 16 short take-off and vertical landing (STOVL) fighter aircraft, such as the Lockheed Martin F-35B Joint Strike Fighter, on its flight deck and 12 more in its hangar.

Unlike the preceding Dokdo class, the CVX will not feature a well deck for amphibious assault craft. Instead, internal space will be dedicated to aircraft storage and maintenance. The flight deck will be of an axial design rather than using a ski-jump (used by other F-35B jet aircraft operators except for the United States Navy).

The ship will feature a multi-function radar (MFR) for ballistic missile defence (BMD).
