    During the interwar years, the US navy operated two interesting ships. With a max speed of over 70 knots, a range of over 6000 miles, and carried a compliment of 5 aircraft, these were definitely not your average ship.
    Who were they?

    What Italian ship designed and built during the 1920's and 30's, sailed around the world in 2002, and is still in service today?

    Clue - While sailing in the Mediterranean sea, in 1962, the American aircraft carrier USS Independence flashed the Italian ship with the light signal asking «Who are you?», the ship answered «????????, Italian Navy». The US ship replied «You are the most beautiful ship in the world».[

    Who is she and what calamities did she have/cause? I blotted out her number on the conning tower to make it a little harder. :)

    USS Garfish.

    Grounded and she was eventually rolled on logs to a nearby bay and relaunched. Protected cruiser Milwaukee was grounded and broke up trying to pull the sub off the beach.

    I figured as much. ;) Unfortunately, with advanced search engines it's easy for anybody to be an 'expert'.

    Here's something interesting I just learned...
    What feature did Akagi and Hiryu share that no other carrier in the world had?

    If that's not enough to go on I'll give a hint late tomorrow.

    Islands were on the port sides of the flight deck compared to the starboard side on all other carriers, supposedly to help with air traffic control.

    Correct, islands were on the port side while everybody else built theirs to starboard.
    Very good, I didn't figure on it getting answered so quick. Go ahead and put up another question if you like. :)
