USS FRANKLIN CV-13

The Franklin deck represents the later deck arrangement of 1945 and beyond. The flight deck has the single H4A catapult to stbd and the H4B catapult to port and the cut-outs for the 40mm tubs have been decked over as the guns were moved to the gallery level. This configuration was used by four ships.
