IJN Ibuki Light Aircraft Carrier

The Ibuki was the result of Japan's carrier losses as the war waged on in the Pacific. Originally laid down and launched as a Mogami type heavy cruiser, it was decided to convert her into a carrier in November of 1943. She had two lifts that serviced a single hangar and a flight deck that ran 672 1/2 feet. She was never completed. Construction halted in March, 1945, and she remained only 4/5ths complete by the end of the war.
