Awesome : It was a type of carrier which was planned a construction of three carrier ships until Midway 's defeat.

G-14: The Japanese Midway, basically a Shinano sized 50.000ton super carrier which was designed as a carrier from the start (to our current knowledge)
G-15: Improved Taiho design

G-14 could be a Shinano class with less ton of Shinano. (50.000 ton) or could be have been a two larger Taiho based on Shinano dimension. G-14 design i suppose was lost with the war.
