USS Wasp (CV-7) was a United States Navy aircraft carrier. The eighth Navy ship of that name, she was the sole ship of her class. Built to use up the remaining tonnage allowed to the U.S. for aircraft carriers under the treaties of the time, she was built on a reduced-size version of the Yorktown-class hull.
USS Wasp in Days of InfamyEdit
After the US lost the 1st Battle of the North Pacific, the Navy then transferred their Atlantic carriers to the Pacific in order to add extra fire power to their fleet. Wasp was part of the US Task Force that returned in 1943 and defeated the Japanese Fleet.
