HMS Habbakuk with HMS Indefatigable, 1946

Illustration showing the top secret design for HMS Habbakuk (centre), a giant aircraft-carrier built of ice and wood pulp, which was proposed as a secret weapon in the Second World War. This project was put forward by Geoffrey Pyke in 1942, but was never built as the practicalities involved were too much for the British war effort. The Habbakuk is shown next to HMS Indefatigable (right), a large British aircraft-carrier built of conventional materials
