This featured topic covers the six Lexington-class battlecruisers laid down after World War I; four fell victim to the Washington Naval Treaty, but two were converted into aircraft carriers and served in World War II. The format is a little unusual, but I've based it on that used in Courageous-class battlecruisers. That nom had a lengthy discussion before its promotion.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 13:16, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Delegate Comment As in the other topic you linked, I do not believe battlecruiser and aircraft carrier should be linked separately in the links to the lead articles. Besides, those articles are linked in the first sentence of both Lexington-class battlecruiser and Lexington-class aircraft carrier. The topic will remain on nomination until after some discussion is initiated.-- 21:58, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Support. I've gone ahead and fixed the templates in the box. Parsecboy (talk) 12:23, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Support topic, oppose having two headers. Pick which one is more notable and have the other one as a sub-article. Nergaal (talk) 15:15, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
    • This is the exact same header style used for the Courageous-class topic.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 18:30, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
      • Which I also opposed. Nergaal (talk) 10:19, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Support with two headers, or no objection to "Lexington-class battlecruiser and aircraft carrier" if that's not overly eggy, which it almost certainly is. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 08:21, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Support - Although is it possible to get the headers on the same line, or at least the same indentation? It looks unfinished with them indented differently. Miyagawa (talk) 19:45, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
    • I wish that it was possible to center them both the same as I agree that it would look better, but I don't believe that it can be done.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 00:19, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Closed with a consensus to promote to Featured Topic. And going along with the precedent set by Courageous-class battlecruisers, the topic is passed with two lead articles.-- 22:03, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
