APNS Avenger (CV-06)

APNS Avenger (CV-06) steams to the Panama Canal en route to join the Pacific Fleet.

The Yorktown-class was a class of four aircraft carriers built by the UAPR and completed shortly before World War II. They immediately followed the Ranger, the first U.S. aircraft carrier built as such, and benefited in design from experience with the Ranger and the earlier Lexington-class. The were succeeded by the People's Republic-class aircraft carriers.

The Illustrious-class of the Royal Navy and the Hiyo-class of the Imperial Japanese Navy are both based on the Yorktown-class design.
