During WWII a gap existed where land-based aircraft could not provide air cover for the lifeline convoys sailing to Britain from North America. That mid-Atlantic gap was the prime hunting grounds for the German U-boat wolf packs until it was closed by the escort carrier groups. These small "Baby Flat Tops," armed with Grumman TBM Avenger torpedo bombers and FM Wildcat fighters, could hunt down and destroy submarines as far from the convoys as required. This picture shows the first "Jeep," CVE-9 Bogue and a pair of her aircraft.
