Zuikaku (Japanese Crane Bringing Happiness) was a Japanese aircraft carrier, the keel of which was laid in 1938, launched in November 1939, and commissioned in the Imperial Japanese Navy in September 1941. The ship was 257 meters long, 26 meters wide, and had a full displacement of 32,000 tons. The maximum speed of the aircraft carrier Zuikaku was around 34 knots, and its main armament was 84 on-board planes.

Zuikaku - along with its twin ship Shokaku - was approved for construction as part of the "Zero 3" and "Zero 4 fleet expansion plans", which envisaged a significant enhancement of the offensive potential of the Japanese Navy. At the same time, the focus was primarily on the maximum speed of the new aircraft carrier and its strike force, while the armor - especially the flight deck - was treated secondarily, which negatively distinguished all Japanese carriers from the initial period of World War II from their counterparts in the British fleet. In World War II, Zuikaku took part in the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941. In January 1942, the deck planes from this turn participated in the attack on Rabaul, and a few months later fought in the Battle of the Coral Sea. In the meantime, he was withdrawn to a ship repair yard, which prevented him from taking part in the Battle of Midway (June 1942). In 1942, Zuikaku also fought in the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands where he was instrumental in the sinking of the American aircraft carrier USS Hornet. The Zuikaku was sunk by American on-board planes in October 1944 during the Battle of Leyte.
