USS Reprisal CV-35 was a planned member of the Essex-class aircraft carriers of World War II. Due to hostilities lessening in the Pacific Theatre and a multitude of other Essex carriers available, construction was cancelled on August 12, 1945 when she was about 52.3% completed. She was launched later that year to clear the slipway and perform bomb damage assessment. Plans were drawn up to complete her as an attack carrier but the plan was ultimately dropped and she was sold for scrap in 1949.
