Ijn aircraft carrier akagi battle of midway limited edition Hasegawa 1:350. Akagi was a Japanese aircraft carrier keeled in 1920, launched in November 1925, and commissioned into the Imperial Japanese Navy in March 1927. The ship was 260.7 m long, 31.3 m wide, and her total displacement was 41,300 tons. The maximum speed of the aircraft carrier Akagi was around 30-31 knots and her main armament consisted of 91 aircraft on board. Originally, Akagi, like another Japanese aircraft carrier, Kaga, was built as a liner under the "8+8" fleet expansion program, but due to international commitments by the Tokyo government, the work was interrupted and the hull had to be scrapped. Ultimately, however, it was decided to build an aircraft carrier on the largely finished hull, which actually happened. At the time of entry into service, Akagi had as many as three flight decks, but with the development of aircraft technology it was decided to completely rebuild her, which took place in 1935-1938. As a result, the hull shape was radically changed and only one flight deck was preserved. During World War II, Akagi took part in the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and fought in the Bismarck Archipelago in early 1942 supporting the Rabaul landings. In April of this year, she also took part in the famous gathering of the Japanese fleet in the Indian Ocean. It also took part in the Battle of Midway (June 1942) where it was sunk by American carrier aircraft.
