USS Saratoga aircraft carrier CV-3 Length: 270.7 meters Width: 32.3 meters Displacement: 33,000 tons The USS Saratoga aircraft carrier is one of the first fast aircraft carriers of the US Navy. On September 25, 1920, Saratoga began construction at the New York Shipyard and entered service more than seven years later. On December 7, 1941, when Pearl Harbor was attacked, the Saratoga had just finished her rest in the San Diego Bremerton Dry Dock. After hearing the news, she immediately set sail for Pearl Harbor and became the core of the third aircraft carrier battle group in the following days. On January 11, 1942, she was hit by a torpedo from a Japanese submarine, causing minor damage. In the battle for Guadalcanal in August 1942, she served as the flagship of Major General Fletcher and provided air cover for the landing forces throughout the operation. After the war, the Saratoga became a surplus of war materials, and had to play the final role in Operation Crossroads to verify the killing effect of nuclear weapons on naval ships. On August 15, 1946, the Saratoga withdrew from the Navy sequence. Throughout its service in World War II, the aircraft carrier Saratoga received seven battle stars.
