A project that evolved from the Conte di Cavour-class battleships, equipped with a reinforced secondary battery. In the 1930s, the ship received a significant upgrade when her anti-torpedo protection was reinforced, her speed was increased, and her main and secondary battery guns were made more powerful.

The Battle of Taranto

Each month, WoWS Builds hosts a competition that challenges you to put up big numbers. Two ships are selected, one for Damage, one for Base XP. Score highest in each ship, and you'll get rewarded with some excellent prizes.

The Battle of Taranto took place on the night of 11–12 November 1940 during the Second World War between British naval forces, under Admiral Andrew Cunningham, and Italian naval forces, under Admiral Inigo Campioni. The Royal Navy launched the first all-aircraft ship-to-ship naval attack in history, employing 21 Fairey Swordfish biplane torpedo bombers from the aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious in the Mediterranean Sea.

The attack struck the battle fleet of the Regia Marina at anchor in the harbour of Taranto, using aerial torpedoes despite the shallowness of the water. The success of this attack augured the ascendancy of naval aviation over the big guns of battleships.

While our two competition ships this month did not participate in the conflict, we'll use them as a stand in!
