An Ultrazord is a combination.

The two Carrierzords you mentioned had battle modes. That's different.
But we could had Ultrazords based on them.

Okay, just to make thinks clear, carrier types!

Classic/Showa type - carries main mecha or components thereof into battle by air. Can be legitimately called Showa (unlike, say, Kamen Rider J)because the last one, Liveman's Machine Buffalo, appeared in '88. Obviously non-existent in PR.

Classic PR type - Late-season key to ultimate combination. Titanus, Tor, the Mighty Mammoth... This is what most pure PR fans will think of, because they were common in the series early days - however unlike sixth rangers and combined-weapon finishers, they didn't become the future standard.

Auxillary type - Also arrives late in the series, but like the Showa type it's only a delivery method. The only examples that com to mind are Artillatron and Zenith, and personally I find these the least significant.

Early ground type - A couple of Heisei series have had early carriers, but generally not aerial ones like the days of yore - we have the Supertain, which later revealed hidden capabilities, and Brachio, who didn't but had character to make up for it. They're probably the closest a pure PR fan can come to a Showa carrier.

So, did I miss any?

Delta Command is very similar to Supertrain - can store and deliver Zords, but later revealed to have a large-scale combat formation (that also arguably is overshadowed by a shorter, six-piece combination that arrives soon after) though Delta Base doesn't move as much as Supertrain.

In the classic early PR sense, I'd almost argue the Bullzord is an unusually aggressive carrier zord with it providing a platform for the other Zords in the final formation.

Good point. I overlooked that because I associate Delta Command with the giant base robots of Turboranger and Fiveman, which don't move enough to be called carriers. Delta Command does, though.
