HMS Illustrious was a British aircraft carrier built before the war and launched in 1939. The ship carried 36 aircraft and was used in the frontline throughout the war. Its most notable achievement was when it sank an Italian battleship and damaged two others in the Battle of Taranto in 1940. The carrier was last used in combat in the Battle of Okinawa in 1945, but was sent home early due to mechanical failure. HMS Illustrious was decommissioned and sold for scrap in 1956.
