Ellyson succeeded in landing an aircraft on the converted deck of the cruiser Pensylvania, the potential of the aircraft carrier as a decisive weapon in naval warfare has never been in doubt . During World War 1 naval aircraft were used for reconnaissance and target-spotting, but it was not until the 1920s that dedicated carrier-based aircraft began to appear, flown from carriers such as Hermes and Ark Royal, and designed to sink enemy ships and protect the airspace above a battle group . This book is a detailed and informative record of the development of the aircraft carrier, from its pioneering years to the nuclear-powered super carriers of the future, lavishly illustrated with full-color artworks and archive color and B&W photographs . Each artwork is accompanied by full specifications listing displacement, dimensions, speed, aircraft complement, armament and electronics, while seven gatefold illustrations reveal further detail in unique cutaway plans of these spectacular weapons of war .
