The Polish Navy seems to have found the wreck of the Nazi's one and only carrier, the Graf Zeppelin. Here's the link:
If I remember correctly she was launched in 1938, but Goering's massive ego was so against the concept of a naval aviation arm (that wasn't under
his control) that he blocked its fitting out for years.
Classic Nazi Diadochi behaviour. No wonder they lost so badly!
Very interesting post Darkmind...i always thought the Graf Zeppelin had ended the war like most Axis vessels..deep sixed One interesting alternate
history scenario written about has been better Kriegsmarine/Luftwaffe co-operation aimed at anti-convoy operations during WW2.Lucky for us it never
came to pass and the Graf Zeppelin never reached action against the allies.
