U.S.S. Lexington (CV-2) was the lead ship of the Lexington class aircraft carrier. Originally designed as a battlecruiser, she was converted into one aircraft carrier during construction to comply with the terms of the Washington Naval Treaty. Lexington was commissioned in 1927. Lexington and her sister ship Saratoga were used to develop and refine carrier tactics in a series of fleet exercises before World War II. She’s a pioneer of the U.S. Navy air combat. This ship sank in the Battle of the Coral Sea.
