On 31 August, the two ships, along with three of the older battleships steamed with a force of ten cruisers and thirty-one destroyers to engage the Operation Hats convoy, but poor reconnaissance prevented the Italian force from engaging the British ships. The lower two levels had 250 mm (9.8 in) and 200 mm (7.9 in) respectively, all mounted on 10 mm (0.39 in) plating. The two ships were repeatedly torpedoed throughout their careers: Littorio was hit by a torpedo during the attack on Taranto in November 1940 and again in June 1942; Vittorio Veneto was torpedoed during the Battle of Cape Matapan in March 1941 and while escorting a convoy to North Africa in September 1941. Vittorio Veneto displaced 40,517 t (39,877 long tons; 44,662 short tons) and 45,029 t (44,318 long tons; 49,636 short tons), respectively. [21] Italia was then stationed in the Great Bitter Lake in Egypt until the end of the war, she was dismantled at La Spezia 1951-54.. Littorio participated in 46 war missions, nine of which were enemy hunting and three were as an escort. Littorio and her sister Vittorio Veneto were built in response to the French battleships Dunkerque and Strasbourg. First among the Littorio battleships were Littorio and Vittorio Veneto laid simultaneously in 1934 and commissioned in 1940. She was named after the Lictor ("Littorio" in Italian), in ancient times the bearer of the Roman fasces, which was adopted as the symbol of Italian Fascism. [48] Roma joined the fleet shortly after the attacks on the two convoys, and joined her sisters for the move to La Spezia. From 1934 to 1942, the Italian Navy (the Regia Marina) funded construction of a four-strong class of new battleship known as the Littorio-class consisting of Littorio, Vittorio Veneto, Roma, and Impero. [8] The 406 mm gun in turn was abandoned in favor of the 381 mm gun because there were no designs for the larger gun, which would delay construction; a 381 mm gun had already been designed for the canceled Francesco Caracciolo class. [14], The system did not perform as effectively as expected, however. Combat was limited to the opposing light forces, and Littorio and Vittorio Veneto did not see action; the British nevertheless broke off Operation Vigorous due to the battleships' presence and heavy air attacks. Littorio displaced 40,724 metric tons (40,081 long tons; 44,891 short tons) as designed and 45,236 t (44,522 long tons; 49,864 short tons) at full load. [42], On 26 March 1941, Vittorio Veneto departed port to attack British convoys to Greece. She was part of the 1938 Naval Expansion Program with Roma. Littorio reached 137,649 shp (102,645 kW) and 31.3 kn (58.0 km/h; 36.0 mph), while Vittorio Veneto made 133,771 shp (99,753 kW) and 31.4 kn (58.2 km/h; 36.1 mph), both at light loadings. [28], The main belt armor of this class was designed and tested to resist 381 mm armor-piercing shells at ranges down to 16,000 m (17,000 yd), which was considered the inner edge of optimal combat range. Garzke, William H.; Dulin, Robert O. [40], Repairs to Vittorio Veneto were completed in time for her to join Littorio on attacks on the convoys Vigorous and Harpoon, which had departed Alexandria and Gibraltar to reinforce Malta simultaneously in mid-June. While en route to Malta, German bombers attacked the fleet with Fritz X radio-guided bombs, damaging Italia and sinking Roma. This topic is categorised under: Ships » Battleships » Battleship Littorio-class. A 26,500 long tons (26,900 t) design was then prepared, which mounted eight 343 mm guns in twin turrets. The Italians promised to provide all necessary technical and material support for the construction of the ships. The Littorio class, also known as the Vittorio Veneto class, was a class of battleship of the Regia Marina, the Italian navy.The class was composed of four ships: Littorio, Vittorio Veneto, Roma, and Impero.Only the first three ships of the class were completed, however. Two hit Roma; one passed through the ship and exploded under her keel, and the second hit near the forward magazines. Italia, Vittorio Veneto, and Impero were broken up for scrap between 1952 and 1954. Two were placed abreast the No. The Impero never sa… As Impero was not completed, her final displacement is unknown. [54], In preparing the design for the Design 1047 type of battlecruisers in early 1940, the Dutch Navy inspected Vittorio Veneto, then under construction, in hopes of gathering some experience on the underwater protection system. [10], Two additional ships were laid down four years later. Nov 15, 2019 - Explore Sam Stewart's board "Italian battleships" on Pinterest. On 30 July 1943, after the fall of Benito Mussolini, Littorio was renamed Italia. [4] Funding was not allocated to begin construction, however, as the Italian Navy did not want to instigate an arms race with the French Navy. Roma was built by the CRDA shipyard, starting on 18 September 1938. They remained at the Great Bitter Lake in the Suez Canal for the rest of the war. They were developed in response to the French Dunkerque-classbattleships, and were armed with 381-milli… The Littorio class, also known as the Vittorio Veneto class, was a class of battleship of the Regia Marina, the Italian navy.The class was composed of four ships—Littorio, Vittorio Veneto, Roma, and Impero—but only the first three ships of the class were completed.Built between 1934 and 1942, they were the most modern battleships used by Italy during World War … Littorio class. [16] The Re.2000 fighter was a wheeled aircraft and had to land on an airfield. She was in Taranto harbor during the Battle of Tarantoon 11 November, during which she received three torpedo hits, which caused extensive damage requiring five mo… [30], The main battery turrets were protected by 380 mm (15 in) cemented armor faces, 200 mm (7.9 in) forward sides and roof, 130 mm (5.1 in) rear sides, 150 mm (5.9 in) rear roof, and 350 mm (14 in) rear. This is an injection-plastic ship model kit. The class was composed of four ships—Littorio, Vittorio Veneto, Roma, and Impero—but only the first three ships of the class were completed. Repairs lasted until July. On 3 January 1942, Littorio was again tasked with convoy escort, in support of M 43. On 17 December, she took part in the First Battle of Sirte. As part of the armistice agreement, Italia was interned at Malta, Alexandria, and finally in the Great Bitter Lake in the Suez Canal, where she remained until 1947. They had been laid down in 1934, and were completed in 1940, just as Italy entered the war. Littorio was renamed Italia in July 1943 after the fall of the Fascist government.

The guns fired a 885 kg (1,951 lb) armor-piercing (AP) shell at a muzzle velocity of 870 meters per second (2,854 ft/s). The three active battleships were transferred to Malta before they were to be interned in Alexandria. The belt consists of a 70 mm (2.8 in) homogeneous armor outer plate and the 280 mm (11 in) cemented armor belt placed 250 mm (9.8 in) behind the outer plate; the 250 mm gap was filed with a cement foam called "Cellulite" to keep the water out of the gap and assist in de-capping armor piercing shells. The Vittorio Veneto was the second ship of the Littorio-class battleships from the Regia Marina. (1985). On 22 March, she participated in the Second Battle of Sirte, as the flagship for an Italian force attempting to destroy a British convoy bound for Malta. Although high explosive shells weighing 774 kg (1,706 lb) were developed for the 381 mm guns, they never saw service on the Littorio-class. Over the machinery spaces, the main armor deck was 100 mm (3.9 in) on 12 mm plating inboard and 90 mm (3.5 in) on 12 mm plating outboard. [14], Littorio and Vittorio Veneto had a standard crew of 80 officers and 1,750 enlisted men; while serving as a flagship, the crew was increased by a command staff of between 11 and 31 additional officers. Italian Battleship Littorio is a piece of digital artwork by Carlo Cestra which was uploaded on April 8th, 2018. The drum ran the length of the torpedo defense system, and was designed to collapse to contain the explosive pressure of a torpedo hit. Littorio and her sister Vittorio Veneto were built in response to the French battleships … [10] These long-barrel, high-velocity guns were chosen to compensate for the smaller 381 mm shell as compared to the 406 mm gun originally desired. [10] After the entrance of Italy to World War II, the Italian Navy moved the unfinished ship from Genoa to Brindisi, out of fears of French attacks on the vessel. 2019 | New tool + Actions Stash. [14] Below the third deck, neither the primary nor secondary barbettes were protected by armor. The propeller shafts, aft diesel generator groups, and steering gear were protected by 100 mm (3.9 in) homogeneous armor plating and a separate 200 mm (7.9 in) bulkhead aft of the citadel. Roma's displacement increased slightly as compared to the other ships, to 40,992 t (40,345 long tons; 45,186 short tons) and 45,485 t (44,767 long tons; 50,139 short tons), respectively. [11] Nevertheless, by the time these ships entered service, the international arms control system had fallen apart and the major naval powers had invoked the "escalator clause" that allowed for ships up to 45,000 long tons (46,000 t) displacement. All four ships had a draft of 9.6 m (31 ft) and a beam of 32.82 m (107.7 ft). [35], Vittorio Veneto sortied on 26 November and encountered British forces south of Sardinia. [17] However, this was reduced to 850 m/s (2,789 ft/s) in order to reduce dispersion and increase barrel service life. [26] The ships' anti-aircraft armament was composed of a powerful battery of twelve 90 mm (3.5 in) L/50 guns closely arranged amidships, twenty 37 mm (1.5 in) L/54 guns, and sixteen 20 mm (0.79 in) L/65 guns. [9] Ultimately, nine 381 mm guns in three triple turrets were adopted as the primary battery for the ships, on a displacement in excess of 40,000 long tons (41,000 t),[10] despite the fact that this violated the established naval treaties. While en route, German bombers laden with Fritz-X radio-guided bombs attacked the formation. The third ship of the Littorio class, Roma displaced 42,000 tons, could make 32 knots, and carried nine Littorio was the lead ship of her class of battleship and she served in the Italian Regia Marina (Royal Navy) during World War II. On 14 October 1946, she was moved to La Spezia, paid off on 3 January 1948, and broken up for scrap. Littorio became the lead ship of the class which included sisters Vittorio Veneto, Impero and Roma. The system was designed to protect the ship from torpedo warheads up to 350 kg (770 lb). The last two battleships were the first of the true treaty battleships, members of the Littorio class. The largest and most powerful warships ever built in Italy, the battleships of the Littorio class, were the first “35,000 tonners” to come under the provisions of the Washington Treaty. [46] Shortly thereafter, on 13 December, Littorio escorted another convoy to North Africa. See more ideas about battleship, warship, navy ships. Able to elevate to 32 degrees, they fired a 29.3 kg (65 lb) semi-fixed round out to an effective range of 5,000 m (16,400 ft). At 35,000 long tons (36,000 t), the initial two ships nominally met the terms of the Washington Treaty. It is a fast battleship, agile and forceful by the bow 9 x 341 mm They could elevate to 45 degrees, permitting a maximum range of 25,740 m (28,150 yd). Littorio and her sister Vittorio Veneto were built in response to the French battleships … Aircraft facilities were located on the quarterdeck, where it was initially planned to base six La Cierva autogyros. Instead, a single catapult was fitted. By October of 1934, Italy had not constructed any new battleships in decades. [15], The ships' propulsion system consisted of four Belluzzo geared steam turbines powered by eight oil-fired Yarrow boilers. In October 1947, the ship was raised and towed to Venice, where she was broken up. February 20, 2021 Qty. Built between 1934 and 1942, they were the most modern battleships used by Italy during World War II. Bagnasco, Erminio; de Toro, Augusto (2010). The London Naval Treaty of 1930 extended the building holiday to 1936, though Italy and France retained the right to build 70,000 tons of new capital ships. [14] Figures for Roma's speed trials have not been recorded. During the battle, Littorio struck and seriously damaged the destroyers HMS Havock and Kingston with her main guns, nearly destroying Kingston, which managed to limp back to Malta the following morning. During this attack Italia was hit on the starboard side underneath her fore main turrets, while its sister ship, the Italian flagship Roma, was sunk after it was struck by two bombs. The main armor deck extends to the bow and stern, where it thinned to 60 mm (2.4 in) over 10 mm (0.39 in) plating and 36 mm (1.4 in) over 8 mm (0.31 in) plating respectively. Franco concluded several agreements with the Italian government that would have seen the building of four Littorio-class battleships in Spain. [2] They opted for this design because this allowed three ships under the 70,000-ton limit. The ship’s main armament consisted of 3 triple turrets with 381 mm guns, 2 turrets superfiring at the front and 1 at the rear. She was launched on 9 June 1940 and was completed on 14 June 1942,[10] after which she joined the fleet in La Spezia and replaced Littorio as the fleet flagship. The ability of the drum to absorb explosive shock correspondingly fell in relation to its size. [31][33], The conning tower was in the same style as the others designed by General Pugliese. Littorio was then renamed Italia. The Italians did not disclose the specifications of the Pugliese system and instead used a multiple-torpedo bulkhead system. During the engagement, she badly damaged the destroyers Havock and Kingston. 2 main battery turret and two on either side of the rear turret. She briefly engaged British cruisers with her rear main battery turret, without scoring any hits. [31] The 152-mm secondary battery turrets were protected by 280 mm (11 in) faces, 80–130 mm (3.1–5.1 in) sides, 80 mm (3.1 in) rear, and 105–150 mm (4.1–5.9 in) roof, while their barbettes were 150 mm (5.9 in) above deck and 100 mm (3.9 in) below deck. By 1930, Germany had begun to build the three Deutschland-class ships, armed with six 280 mm (11 in) guns, and France had in turn laid down two Dunkerque-class battleships to counter them. She was commissioned on 6 May 1940, and after running additional trials that month, she transferred to Taranto where she - along with the Vittorio Veneto - joined the 9th Division under the command of Rear Admiral Carlo Bergamini. An evolution of the original larger design proposals for the Littorio class armed with 16 inch guns (M1936/39), which were still being updated after the Littorios' launch as a potential follow-up with improved AA, torpedo protection and machinery as response to future British and French battleship plans. [13] On sea trials, both Littorio and Vittorio Veneto exceeded the design specifications for their power plant. The Armistice between Italy and Allied armed forces took place on 8 September, along with the rest of the Italian fleet she was formally surrendered to the Allies on the following day. In addition, the Roma began its construction in 1938 and entered service in 1942. On 26 September, the two battleships attempted to intercept the Operation Halberd convoy, but they broke off the operation without attacking the convoy. [36] In September 1943, following the withdrawal of Italy from the war, all three ships and a significant portion of the Italian fleet left port to be interned in Malta. Over the magazines, the main armor deck was 150 mm (5.9 in) homogeneous armor laminated on a 12 mm (0.47 in) deck plating inboard and 100 mm (3.9 in) on 12 mm plating outboard. [42], Littorio and Vittorio Veneto had both returned to active duty by August 1941, and on the 22nd the two ships sortied to attack a convoy. Italian shell quality control was awful, leading to engagements where British sailors described shells landing hundreds of meters away on either side of the ship. Repairs were completed and on 12 December, both ships were moved from Taranto to La Spezia in response to the Allied landings in North Africa. Regardless, the Soviet Navy did not use the U.P. Significant flooding caused the ship to settle by the bow. Vittorio Veneto was launched on 22 July 1937, with Littorio following exactly one month later on 22 August. Vittorio Veneto shot down one aircraft, but the battleship was flooded with some 4,000 t (3,900 long tons; 4,400 short tons) of water, though she got underway after ten minutes and eventually reached Taranto on 29 March. The British follow-up convoy was much better defended and when the Italian fleet sortied on the 27 November to intercept it they were met with a covering force including two British battleships an… In service, however, the ships averaged 28 kn (52 km/h; 32 mph). [18] The 824.3 kg (1,817 lb) semi-armor piercing shells formed the secondary ammunition of the 381mm/50, which had a 29.51 kg (65.1 lb) bursting charge. The incomplete Impero had meanwhile been seized by the retreating Germans in 1943, who used her as a target, until she was sunk by American bombers on 20 February 1945.
