USS Lexington[edit]

Hello Fuzzypony. I am interested in the source for the displacement figures you give for Lex and Sara. The sources I have read give their standard displacements (as opposed to full-load displacements) at 33,000 or 36,000 tons. Also, those sources do not support the claim that Ranger was built with the remaining treaty tonnage, but that Wasp was. See Talk:USS Lexington (CV-2) and the sources cited there. (Reply here or on the Lex talk page.) Thanks. Kablammo 13:17, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I hope that your health has improved and that you will be back contributing soon. I was aware that the Treaty limits were interpreted quite liberally by the contracting powers (I think the Brits claimed that they were the only ones who didn't cheat), and that many ships probably did have standard displacements in excess of the treaty limits. I still however have a question: Everything I have read states that it was Wasp that was built smaller to comply with treaty totals (after reclassification of Langley), not Ranger. When Ranger was built the US was not close to the limits.

Thanks for the interesting reply. I have moved it, my contributions, and related contributions to Talk:Lexington class aircraft carrier so that the thread can be followed by us and others. It seems like a more logical place to carry this discussion forward. I'll watch that page and if you do the same we can communicate there and also allow others to particpate more easily.
