Hello aurelien wolff,

In Improved Maru5 (No.5) construction plan (September 1942), the construction of 5 Improved TAIHO Fleet Carriers was approved. (G-15 Project: No.5021, No.5022, No.5023, No.5024 and No.5025)
However, in order to compensate for the loss of fleet carriers in the Midway Battle, the construction of the UNRYU Class fleet carrier with a short construction period was given priority, and the G-15 Project was canceled in August 1943.
