, the Operational history of CV-6 USS Enterprise


Genesis
The sixth aircraft carrier of the navy of the united state of america has become a child of the Washington naval treaty and the economic crisis. Wahhingtonská maritime contract governing the ratios of the displacement of warships between the US, the United kingdom, the Japanese of iran, the French republic and the Italian kingdom to allow the United states the construction of aircraft carriers to the displacement of 135 thousand tons. The first three aircraft carrier of the u.s. navy were converted from battle cruisers, only CV-4 Ranger was built from the outset as a powered aircraft. In 1931 there was the use of the contractual limit of 55 thousand tons. It was decided to build two more ships of 19800 tonnes in whose design and construction you have worked experience with the operation of the first four aircraft carriers. In the summer of 1933, president Franklin Roosevelt pushed through a package of measures to support the economy known as the "New Deal" which was $ 40 million dedicated to the construction of two aircraft carriers. The first one, CV-5 Yorktown began to build in the shipyards in the News Newport. The construction of the sister of the CV-6 Enterprise was launched two months later 16.7.1934.


pre-war service
12.5.1938 the Enterprise was taken into the service after a trial voyage to Rio de Janeiro. After inclusion in the service participated in the January 1939 the exercises of the fleet in the Caribbean sea. In April 1939 it moved to its new base in San Diego in the assembly of the Pacific fleet. A year later, the Pacific fleet moved to new base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Two peaceful years with the Pacific fleet have been digested almost in continuous service with only short breaks to complement the inventory and the one break for the filming of the movie "Dive bomber". Her air group to continually exercise in relentless drill, which after the outbreak of the war well zúročilo. In 1941 the US began to take some precautionary steps in case the entry into the war. In the context of the Pacific fleet, the Enterprise has the task to transport army fighter P-39 and P-40, as well as the fighter of the navy and the marine corps from the west coast to Pearl Harbor, Wake and Guam. On their last delivery service sail 28.11.1941, two days after the japanese attack fleet set off to attack. The aim was the arrival of the pilots of the marine corps and their fighters to Wake island. Fighters were přelétnuty 2. December and then Enterprise turned to return back to Pearl Harbor. Thanks to the inclement weather, was the speed of the cruise reduced and the Enterprise so nepřiplula to Hawaii, the sixth of December as planned, but it was 150 nautical miles to the west when they began to fall of the japanese bombs, meaning the war between the US and Japan. Her first acquaintance with this new experience came through its own pilots, who got into the anti-aircraft fire when crossing over the naval air base at Ford Island and were forced to radio to ask for cease-fire on their machines, because they are after all american.
The first moments of the war and the year 1942
Immediately on the attack was given the Enterprise to warrant the search for and attack the japanese fleet. Inaccurate news reports, and estimates have led to the search over the waters southwest of Hawaii, where was situated on the only american ships.

In the spring of 1942, the conduct of the Enterprise, Yorktown and Hornet series of raids against japanese bases. A Moment of surprise played in favor of attacking americans and air crews so as to obtain valuable first combat experience, which is so well paid off in early June in the battle of Midway. Japanese procedure across the Pacific to the east was thus stopped. In August, the Enterprise participated to cover the landing of the alien forces on Guadalcanal and the subsequent naval battles in its vicinity, at the Eastern Solomon islands and the October in Santa Cruz.

As a result, the hangárové board appeared the inscription: "Enterpeise vs. Japan". Fortunately, after a December of 1942, already did not have the Enterprise never fight alone.

USS Enterprise - 00 (Interactive Guide) Interactive guide

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔25.04.2009 An aircraft carrier is a real floating city. As a terrestrial nation, we usually do not have many opportunities to walk on board. On the occasion of the broadcast of the Aircraft Carrier series, we have prepared an interactive tour, which allows us to get to know the basic armaments and equipment deployed on board the USS Enterprise (CV-6).

USS Enterprise - 01 Pearl Harbour

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 The United States was drawn into World War II by attacking the largest Pacific base with Japanese aircraft. At the time of the first bombs, treacherous Japanese diplomats were discussing the details of the peace treaty with Secretary of State Hull. Such insidiousness is not forgotten. In the Pacific, a naval war began that the world did not see… the war of aircraft carriers. Display article

USS Enterprise - 02 Retribution at Midway

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 After the battle fleet was massacred at the Pearl Harbor berth, the Americans were left with virtually only aircraft carriers. The Japanese began a successful victorious campaign in the Pacific. One bastion of resistance after another fell, and nothing seemed to stop the Japanese expansion. Display article

USS Enterprise - 03 In the clutches of the enemy

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 The Battle of Midway fundamentally changed the pace of forces in the Pacific. By sinking four large aircraft carriers, the Japanese fleet lost a substantial part of its attack potential. The Americans, who had just retreated until then, decided to try what it was like to attack territory occupied by the enemy. The first invasion was directed at the island of Guadalcanal.

USS Enterprise - 04 Bloody Islands of Santa Cruz

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 The USS Enterprise was hit several times near Solomon Islands and had to undergo the inevitable repair. The repairs could not last long, because together with the sister USS Hornet, they were the only two aircraft carriers left to the Americans in the Pacific. The Japanese superiority was threefold.

USS Enterprise - 05 Alone against Japan

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 After the sister aircraft carrier USS Hornet was sunk at the Battle of Santa Cruz, the USS Enterprise was left alone in the Pacific. American industry has begun, but the production of an aircraft carrier is not a matter of weeks or months. Until newly built aircraft carriers were available, the Enterprise was the only operational aircraft carrier the US Navy had in the Pacific. Display article

USS Enterprise - 06 Gray Ghost

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 In early 1943, the USS Enterprise again faced the Japanese and again in the waters surrounding the island of Guadalcanal. It was then sent to the United States for a well-deserved overhaul, which definitively repaired the provisionally repaired damage. She returned to combat at the head of a strong operational alliance.

USS Enterprise - 07 Hell's hammer

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 The USS Enterprise was sent to Truk Atoll after the fighting off the Gilbert Islands. One of Japan's largest naval bases. The miserable period of fighting alone was over. It now sails as the flagship of a strong operational alliance. Display article

USS Enterprise - 08 Day D in the Pacific

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 In June 1944, American forces attacked the island of Saipan in the Marianas. It was another of the islands that American forces needed to begin further progress toward Japan. The noose began to pull slowly. Display article

USS Enterprise - 09 Battle of Leyte Bay

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 In the Battle of the Mariana Islands, the Hellcats massacred the Japanese air force in action, which the Americans called Turkey shooting. The Japanese's ability to act seemed limited. Few could have imagined that it was heading for the largest naval battle in the history of World War II. Display article

USS Enterprise - 10 The last attempt of the Japanese empire

👤Ing. Radek ˝ICE˝ Panchartek 🕔30.03.2009 The USS Enterprise has received several nicknames. One of them was "Lucky E", she was in big danger couple times, but she always managed to survive enemy attacks. Will the proverbial happiness last her until the end of the war? Display article
