    Caracciolo class BB



    The first Caracciolo-class BB in the AusBG has undergone sea trials and an (accidental) baptism of fire.
    She performed well, with only a bit of tweaking on the rudders required.
    Now awaiting completion and certification of her cannon, and she'll be the Italian Bismarck she was intended to be.

    RE: Caracciolo class BB

    cool! The Caracciolo is an interesting class, faster than the QE's but in-line rudders not tandem. I wonder how well she compares. There is a very nice QE in the WWCC, HMS Warspite, that I used to love fighting against with my Viribus Unitis. The old-school WWI battleships have a look and style all on their own, that makes them truly special.
    There are 101 types of people: those who understand binary, those who don\'t, and those who just can\'t count.

    RE: Caracciolo class BB

    With the Caracciolo, what you gain in speed, you lose in turning, big time.
    That said, since I normally sail a Nelson-class, I thought the turning wasn't so bad.
    With just a little tweak on the rudder arm, it will be quite acceptable, but still nowhere near as good as a QE
