Dry Dock: Roma

Today, we’re focusing on Italian Premium battleship Roma. This Vittorio Veneto-class ship had every right to be considered a first-class battleship by the standards of her time. Her full displacement is about 45,000 tons, she carries 381 mm artillery, has up to 350 mm-thick side armor, more than 60 AA guns, and a group of three aircraft—her numbers are impressive. Even though this battleship never saw action, the combat potential of this “monster” is clearly visible to everyone.
