Product Description
Proposed 1940 design for a US Navy "Flying Deck Cruiser" - basically a hybrid aircraft carrier-light cruiser. It was first proposed in the 1920s when funding for ships, particularly aircraft carriers, was hard to come by. Proposed again in 1940 but design was deemed not practical and was never built; especially with funding available for Yorktown class CV and Brooklyn class CL.

Set contains 2 identical pieces. Sized for compatibility with Axis & Allies board game
