ACCEPTING PRE-ORDERS FOR JULY 2022 DELIVERYACY-14229
The USS Yorktown was one of America’s eight active carriers when the country formally entered World War II after the attack on Pearl Harbor. It was based in the Atlantic at the time of the attack but was soon equipped with additional anti-aircraft weapons and sent to the Pacific where it became the flagship of Task Force 17.
The USS Yorktown (CV-5) was heavily damaged at the Battle of Coral Sea, but it pushed on to join other Navy forces at the Battle of Midway, where the valiant actions of the crew helped ensure a U.S. victory despite the loss of the ship.
