**The ''Wasp''-Class is a ''Yorktown''-class vessel that was finished as a smaller design(due to new treaty restrictions) with limited success.  The design tried to retain the same aircraft compliment with half the displacement(19,116 long tons fully loaded).  The ship was not as capable and too easily damaged in combat.  The USS ''Wasp'' sank after taking only 3 torpedo hits from a Japanese submarine.
