Hybrid 14 in Japanese battleship Ise under air attack at Kure in July 1945 - she sank in shallow water.  Built in the dreadnought era, together with sister Hyuga she was converted in late 1942 / early 1943 via removal of her stern turrets to a stopgap semi-carrier after the disastrous losses at Midway.  By the end of the war it was shortage of aircraft, pilots and fuel as much as actual carriers that proved fatal.
