  1. Great news! ...However, I've kinda spotted a spelling mistake. As she is supposed to be one herself, it should say "Giulio Cesare as a Carabiniere"; "carabinieri" is plural or referring to the organization.
  2. Nice mention of the Invergordon mutiny. A bit weird having Edinburgh mention it, since she was still in mente Dei when it happened, but she is closest geographically, I guess... Speaking of which, apart from some old destroyers derated to torpedo boats, by 1939 there weren't any Italian ships around involved in what could be defined instances of mutiny regarding D'Annunzio's occupation of Fiume (nowadays Rijeka) in 1919-20. For the Marine Nationale, though, the Provence is still around, for the ships that were involved in the Black Sea mutiny.
  3. I'm sure the persons in Südtirol who care about Italian WWII-era submarines could be counted on just one hand.
  4. Just being curious, but why do you call an Italian submarine an U-Boot?
  5. ...Looking awesome? And provide bragging rights? 🙄
  6. Just noticed that it wasn't the British battlecruiser that had such an unfortunate end at Jutland. Derp! 😅 But anyway...
  7. Happy New Year, everybody! And this, I like! Nothing like a submarine and a Navigatori-class destroyer to start off the new year with a bang!
  8. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/blackchickenstudios/victory-belles/posts/2930590 - So... how everything started, eh? Interesting choice for Espero for being the first one to awaken. Of all the places in the Mediterranean, one wonders why Corruption decided to go and show up at Tobruk.
  9. Actually, I was referring to the mere existence of the Savoy neutral zone (or not, I'm not sure, the Italians sure would have loved for it to exist when they were drawing plans for a war against France, during the Triple Alliance, but France sure thought it was no longer an issue), and the fact that somehow a deal between the Duchy of Savoy and the Swiss Confederation had somehow kept going since the Middle Ages, till it was finally abolished at Versailles. I see what you mean, I misunderstood then.
  10. I'm sorry, I don't understand; in which way did she violate the abrogation of the Savoy neutral zone (a nice piece of medieval diplomacy that somehow survived till the modern age, much to the befuddlement of the Stato Maggiore of the Regio Esercito, when they were trying to come up with a war plan against France...)? Anyway, really nice; Aosta is nice. And she does look out for her own. Just a warning, guys, don't get used to it, since in the Regia Marina there is usually a divide between captains and officers, and the enlisted men. Only in submarines, eventually, things got a bit better.
  11. It took me a while to think about that, but a similar, if more reduced, situation would be present in the Regia Marina as well, since in 1938 all the servicemen in all Italian armed forces of Jewish origins were cashiered. I believe I mentioned that when, in the topic I opened back in the day, I discussed General Umberto Pugliese, the guy who designed the Littorio-class battleships among other things.

  13. So, we're getting closer to getting a release date? Awesome, thanks a lot, guys, for all your work! 👍
  14. I'm fine. Sitting tight, and getting my nose out of the door just for essential reasons, but so far so good. I hope it's the same for everyone in here. 👍
