HMS Hermes, commissioned in 1924, was the first ship in the world to be designed, ordered, and constructed with the specific purpose of operating aircraft.

The Hosho tech tree blurb says it was the first.

Wikipedia states:-

"HMS Hermes was a British aircraft carrier built for the Royal Navy and was the world's first ship to be designed as an aircraft carrier, although the Imperial Japanese Navy's Hōshō was the first to be launched and commissioned."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Hermes_(95)

So both statements are supported by Wikipedia.

The source given for this information is Milanovich, Kathrin (2008). "Hôshô: The First Aircraft Carrier of the Imperial Japanese Navy". In Jordan, John. Warship 2008. London: Conway. ISBN 978-1-84486-062-3. pp. 9, 13
