Navy's mini-carriers in such battles as Leyte Gulf, Guadalcanal, the Marianas, and Okinawa never gained the attention given the fast carriers, but there is little question that their vital operations played an important role in the Pacific campaign.

These remarkably versatile vessels--called CVEs, baby flattops, and even jeeps--hunted submarines.

Escort Carriers (AVG, ACV and CVE) The original escort carrier designation AVG (Aircraft Escort Vessel) was first assigned on 31 March The classification was changed to ACV (Auxiliary Aircraft Carrier) on 20 August and to CVE (Escort Carrier) on 15 July The CVE designation went out of use when the remaining escort carriers were reclassified AKV (Aircraft Ferry) on 7 May The United States Navy had a sizable fleet of escort aircraft carriers during World War II and the era that followed.

These ships were both quicker and cheaper to build than larger fleet carriers and were built in great numbers to serve as a stop-gap measure when fleet carriers were too few. However, they were usually too slow to keep up with naval task forces and would typically be assigned.

Lightly armored, slower than the fleet carriers and with far less defensive armament and aircraft, yet in great need early, escort carriers were quickly converted from existing merchant, oiler, and cruiser hulls.

Initially APV then changed to AVG on 31Mar41, which was changed to ACV on 20Aug42, and all changed to CVE on 15July See CVE discussion. The Taiyō-class escort carrier (大鷹型航空母艦, Taiyō-gata Kōkū-bokan) was a group of three escort carriers used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) during World War of the ships were built as cargo liners in the late s and subsequently taken over by the IJN and converted into escort carriers, while the third ship was converted while still under construction.

Although barely a third the displacement of the fleet carriers fighting in the Pacific, escort carriers used in close support of the convoys were able to close the mid-ocean gap.

But when the “baby flattops” were cut loose from their convoys to pursue the U-boats wherever they may be, the Battle of the Atlantic’s wolves became the prey.

The escort carrier was designed as a solution to the shortage of naval air power for convoy protection by repurposing merchant hulls into pocket sized aircraft carriers.

By the end of WW2 Britain had operated 45 escort carriers, in the Atlantic, Arctic, Indian and Pacific oceans: 6. The typical Escort Carrier was small, slow and vulnerable, but it could carry about 18 aircraft, which gave the convoys a real chance to detect and sink dangerous U-Boats.

Collectively, their contribution to an Allied victory was immense, particularly in the long and grueling campaigns fought in. And substantial numbers of inexpensive, quickly constructed Allied escort carriers fulfilled critical secondary roles – freeing larger, faster carriers for major maritime operations.

Now Mark Stille tells the terrific tale in US Navy Escort Carriers –45 – number in Osprey's perennially popular "New Vanguard" range.

Although its escorts were bound to protect the slow, unarmored escort carriers, Taffy 2, commanded by Rear Admiral Felix B. Stump, was able to support Taffy 3 with its aircraft as the battle progressed. Taffy 1, commanded by Rear Admiral Thomas L.

Sprague, also launched some aircraft, but would be faced with other challenges as the day progressed. Lastly, in March designs were examined for high-speed (knot) oilers. One of these was for a ship similar in many ways to the larger types of wartime escort aircraft carriers (CVE), but faster, larger and with a smaller aircraft hangar.

This page features those Bureau of Ships "Spring Styles" plans that concern aircraft carriers. Escort Carrier WWII tells the war history of Petrof Bay in 15 chapters chronologically arranged, and two long chapters on the Battle of Leyte Gulf and Battle of Okinawa make up about half the book.

A useful two-page glossary provides meanings for various acronyms and other technical terms, but the book lacks a map to show locations of Petrof. Though others helped win the Battle of the Atlantic, the influence of the escort carrier groups was profound.
