The German aircraft carrier I was a planned conversion of the transport ship Europa. Conversion planning began in May 1942, but the work was canceled in November 1942 after design problems proved to be irreconcilable. Had the conversion been finished, she would have been the largest German aircraft carrier, longer even than the purpose-built Graf Zeppelin-class aircraft carriers.
