Japan had the worlds largest carrier at the time, the super carrier Shinano. It was sunk after 4 years of construction, by the US Submarine Archer Fish. It was never able to have any part in the war.
random WW2 fact: convoy PQ-17 was the worst convoy disaster in WW2. it sailed from Britain to the Russian post of Murmansk but when a German fleet was discovered following it, the commander order the convoy to scatter, which allowed easy pickings for German U-boats. Out of the 36 ships, 22 were sunk, almost 2/3 of the entire convoy, and with it 100,000 tons of cargo including 350 tanks, 2,500 planes and 3,350 vehicles that were all desperately needed by the Soviets.
