Prezzo online:

  • Italy was working on an embarked guided-rocket weapon system since 1940 and was also spying on Germanys V-1 developments
  • Beautifully illustrated with many rare/unpublished photographs and line drawings, which gives a unique insight in the history of Littorio-class design
  • A must-have for military enthusiasts, modellers and those interested in the complexities of naval warfare during the Second World War

From 1941, Italy had been developing a top-secret project to install guided rocket weapons aboard aircraft carriers. Campini Caprons revolutionary guided rocket weapon, the DAAC, which would later become Hitlers Henschel HS-117 Schmetterling (`Butterfly), was the selected projectile.

Classified intelligence on the V-1 flying bomb and other aircraft projects were acquired and then discarded when Ansaldos naval architect, Lino Campagnoli (19111975), issued plans for the Impero battleship to be transformed into a modern fleet carrier.

Previously unpublished documentation reveals how the last of the four state-of-the-art Littorio-class battleships, which was in advanced completion (hull components and engines installed), was destined for conversion into a modern aircraft carrier.

This is an exhaustive historical review of the Impero and Regia Marinas (Royal Navy) developments as well as the dramatic story of the lack of co-operation and strategic insight with Regia Aeronautica before and during the war (1922-1943). Also, a final evaluation of the revolutionary Pugliese anti-torpedo system, based on unpublished German and Russian documentation, is assessed.
