Description The USS Forrestal (CV-59), was a supercarrier named after former Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal and was affectionately called 'The FID'. Commissioned in 1955, she was the first supercarrier, and was the lead ship of her class. She superseded the World War II Japanese carrier Shinano as the largest aircraft carrier ever built in terms of full load displacement and was the first to specifically support jet aircraft.
