‘Pocket’ Aircraft Carrier to Mother Seaplanes (Jun, 1936)
‘Pocket’ Aircraft Carrier to Mother Seaplanes
Following the trend toward “pocket-size” warships, an airplane carrier designed by a British aircraft manufacturer has a displacement of only 3,000 tons. It
would be specifically commissioned to handle seaplanes. Over-all length would be 361 feet, with a fifty-two foot beam. Its cruising radius would be 5,000 miles.
