Technically, a supercarrier is a carrier class vessel which is however many time larger and much more expensive to build.
In comparison to a typical carrier, a supercarrier has the following features:
There are 4 types of Supercarrier, 1 for each of the 4 races
Supercarriers excel in performing three functions:
Anti-capital warfare. When fielding fighter-bombers, Supercarriers can put out enormous damage against capital-sized targets.
While performing POS repairing, the supercarrier's immunity to EW allows it to easily slip in/out of POS shields while repairing the POS's Shields/Armor without being concern of attackers with stasis webifers preventing an easy escape.
During attacks against hostile carriers employing spider tank tactics, the supercarrier's remote ecm burst is invaluable in breaking their cycles and allows for friendly ships to overwhelm the target ship.
