Nicknamed the "Fighting I," the U.S.S. Intrepid was the third of twenty-four Essex-class carriers built for the U.S. Navy during WWII. She was crucial to several Pacific Theater campaigns, including the Battle of Leyte Gulf. After the war, she was used as a recovery ship during the Mercury and Gemini programs. Today, she is anchored off New York's coast as a museum ship. Kit features a textured flight deck, superstructures with radar equipment, a shipboard cannon, anti-aircraft guns, aircraft, four propellers and decal markings for the flight deck and aircraft.
