USS Robin - The Carrier That Didn't Exist

"This new fleet carrier was being called the USS Robin, but it was not listed in the USN inventory, and it couldn’t be The USS Essex, which was nowhere near completion. Yet there she was—a full-sized fleet carrier complete with American Avengers and Wildcats on her deck. "

Huh. I love military shenanigans and deception stuff.

Hehe, it is the HMS Victorious.
I remember being pretty surprised when I first read about that operation.

Although I wonder… the article states it were only Americans flying from it, but I think I read somewhere that some pilots of the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm were also involved. Not sure where though…
