Design 1933 Battlecruiser (Italy)

3D printed in white nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.
Product Description
The Regia Marina was very focused on keeping control over the Mediterranean and as such, it viewed the French and Royal navies as their adversaries in any potential conflicts. The Regia Marina was invited to the Washington Naval Treaty and it was given the status of a third tier power, in parity with the French Navy. The result of this was that by the late 1920’s, the Italian and French navies had 70,000 tons of spare capital ship allotment. The Italians and French both studied several battleship and battlecruiser designs from 1928 onwards; from designs similar to the Deutschland class and light battlecruisers to fast battleships. The French finally decided to laid down the Dunkerque in 1932 and in response, the Italians started the design study for a battlecruiser capable of rivalling the Dunkerque class. Such a design was the 1933 battlecruiser design which is analysed here which had firepower to rival the Dunkerque’s eight gun broadside. They would never be built; instead the development was halted and focus shifted to designing fast battleships, resulting in the Vittorio Veneto class that we all love and the rebuilding of the four old battleships of the Regia Marina.
