Overview
 
Conceived after examining the modern aircraft carriers built by the Japanese, the Graf Zeppelin-Class were conceived in the mid-1930s by the Kriegsmarine. There were initially four ships in the class though, due to difficulties in technical knowhow and the priority given to U-Boats, the number was reduced to two. The lead ship, the Graf Zeppelin, was worked on through 1943 when it was permanently suspended; the second ship, whose name was proposed to be the DKM Peter Strasser, was worked on for only one year beginning in 1938 and was halted with the outbreak of World War II.
