AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LEXINGTON 1935
The USS Lexington (CV-2) was the second aircraft carrier of Lexington class built by the United States (first was the USS Langley), but the first used operationally. Includes 166 profiles, double-sided A2 sheet with modeling plans.
The history of the USS Lexington was troubled: in fact it was designed in 1916 to be an atypical battle cruiser, as little armored, but with heavy cannons. Because of the Washington Treaty of 1922 about the reduction of naval armaments, she was reclassified and converted into an aircraft carrier, capable of carrying a flight of 85 aircraft.
