Independence — American Tier VI aircraft сarrier.

A set of speedy light aircraft carriers, converted from several incomplete Cleveland-class cruisers, emerged as a result of the U.S. urgency to acquire new aircraft carriers swiftly amid the war. The primary advantage of Independence-class ships lay in their remarkable speed, allowing them to play an active role alongside strike aircraft carriers in all major U.S. Navy operations in the Pacific.
