    I wonder what impact that carrier would have had on the war if it was commissioned!

    Thanks Ade for the photos

    This carrier would have been sunk outright by the RN and would have made for another great B/W war picture!

    Great photos of what would have been a doomed ship. I agree with Rene' and Nick 100%. You fine Brits wouldn't have tolerated that bohemoth floating in your back yard. It would have gone the way of the Tripitz or Bismarck.
