FDM and CXT, don't sprain your hands diving for the keyboard... you two can't play for 24 hours (or 1130pm Central Pond Time on Saturday). Everybody else, no image searching or the like, one guess per person, have at it! Winner gets a post of your choice. Good luck!

Looking over all the passenger-liner-conversion-to-carrier proposed or started (I do not think any Navy other than IJN ever finished a conversion.), I amazed at how slow the Junyo and Hiyo were, even in the original civilian incarnation. I guess that is a result of not having any ships involved in the North Atlantic passenger trade, with a shot at the Blue Riband.

I did notice how narrow the flight deck was. I guess that should have cued me to the fact that it was a mutant.
I think that is more a matter of perspective from where the photo was taken. Most Japanese fleet carriers had narrow flight decks on par with what the Aquila was converted with. Quite a few carriers in other navies of roughly the same displacement had flight decks of fairly similar width - heck, there were carriers with significantly larger displacements that had decks only slightly wider.
