The HMS Illustrious (R87) was an aircraft carrier of the Royal Navy, leader of the class Illustrious, who fought in World War II. It is one of the most storied aircraft carriers in the Royal Navy. Launched in April 1939, it entered service in May 1940. The Fairey Swordfish torpedo bomber attack was launched from its deck against part of the Italian fleet anchored in Taranto. It also served in the Pacific Front suffering some kamikaze attacks in April 1945. The aircraft carrier was decommissioned in 1954, and scrapped in 1956. (Source: Wikipedia).
