Support Aircraft Carrier, I thought it might be one of those early cargo ship conversions but it was brand new.

An awesome load of awesome airplanes!
The Wikipedia article on the Altamaha https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Altamaha_(CVE-18)

left me breathless at the travels and travails of this brave little ship and her crew.
I wonder what a ship had to do to get TWO battle stars.
The photo was taken on San Francisco Bay with more at Google images.
Thanks Bruce.

The Altamaha was laid down 19 December 1941, Launched: 22 May 1942, commissioned 15 September 1942.
That right there is a, "no fucking around, there's a war on" schedule.

I gotta say, these newer warships are pretty damn sinister-looking:

Too much top hamper, that's like swinging anvils from the mast head.
Too much weight to high up. and that tower has too much sail area, they need to take that monstrosity down and replace it with a cage mast for the radar and satellite domes.

I think the idea is to make the radar profile smaller.

So make your mast out of a non radar reflective material, like fiber glass.
