Lexington is an aircraft carrier based on USS Lexington (CV-2).
Lexington (CV-2) was originally a Lexington-class battle cruiser but was reconstructed into an aircraft carrier. After she entered service in 1927, Lexington and her sister Saratoga participated in a series of US naval exercises and accumulated a large amount of experience in the usage and development of aircraft carriers. When the war erupted, Lexington had been carrying aircrafts to Wake Island. In the Battle of Coral Sea of 1942, Lexington sank an IJN aircraft carrier and damaged another. However, she in turn was heavily damaged by an IJN aircraft carrier and sank in the end.
Named after Battle of Lexington in Massachusetts, USA
