U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier Lineages

(CV 1 to CVN 80
CVE 1 to CVE 139)

(Updated 6 March 2017)

Bibliography

Register of ships of the U.S. Navy, 1775-1990: Major Combatants by Karl Jack Bauer and Stephen S. Roberts.

NOTE: FY41S stands for supplemental. These ships were added retroactively to the FY41 orders after the FY42 orders had been finalized. This was due to FDR pressuring the navy to convert light cruisers into carriers to fill a carrier commissioning shortage.

2017 Update: Standardized builder's names, and increased year format in the dates from two digit to four digit (7 May 91 to 7 May 1891) due to problems in Excel.
