Note armaments have not yet been mounted absence of the forward cruiser caliber gun turrets is particularly evident.

All of the carriers built by Japan in this era seem to be an after thought converted battleships.Perhaps things would have been different in those pacific battels, had they possesed carriers designed and built from the ground up.Note I said diffrent in battels not the overall war.
