Default 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.

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.

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
