    Italian aircraft carrier? Aquila!

    Dear forum users, playmates. I decided to open this topic to make a suggestion to Wargaming! Just like Germany, Italy also attempted to build a CV. That's right! It will seem incredible, yet it is the truth. His name was Aquila and was 90% completed before the project was interrupted. Aquila (Eagle) was designed for the Royal Italian Navy during the Second World War, obtained with the conversion of the hull of the transatlantic Roma. (Not to be confused with the Littorio class battleship, launched afterwards). It was the first Italian aircraft carrier with a flight deck to have been built, but unfortunately it never entered service. A fate analogous to the Graf Zeppelin of Kriegsmarine. The Italian military leaders have always opposed the construction of aircraft carriers, but with the attack on the Taranto naval base on 12 November 1940, the effectiveness of the naval aviation embarked became evident and it was decided urgently to equip the Regia Marina with an aircraft carrier. Among the possible candidates for transformation into an aircraft carrier, a transatlantic liner was chosen that needed a lot of modernization work. The project was developed by the colonel of naval genius Luigi Gagnotto and included a unit with two superimposed bridges, with the lower deck used for takeoff and the upper one for aircraft landing. Exactly as it happened for the japanese aircraft carrier Kaga and the english one Furious. The ship would have been able to embark a total of about 54 airplanes, all with folding wings: 18 dive bombers Reggiane Re.2002, 18 fighters Reggiane Re.2001 and 18 torpedo bombers Savoia-Marchetti S.M.79. The armament consisted mainly in the AA defense: eight cannons of 135 mm, twelve anti-aircraft guns of 65 mm and one hundred and thirty-two machine guns of 20 mm. The engine was built using two apparatuses destined for light cruisers of the "Capitani Romani" class (available after the cancellation of the construction of four of the twelve planned units), equipping the Aquila with eight boilers and four turbines and recalibrating the power they allowed the ship to reach a maximum speed of 30 knots. Although it was damaged in November 1942, while it was still under construction in Genoa, on the date of the armistice of 8 September 1943, the ship was already 90% completed, practically ready for testing and sea trials and had already carried out the first static tests of the engine apparatus, but did not have time to enter active duty. On 9 September the ship fell into the hands of the Germans who took it over by entrusting it to the authorities of the Italian Social Republic, which attempted to complete it and put it into service in the Republican National Navy, but without success, due to the continuing Anglo-American bombardments, like that in the port of Genoa of 16 June 1944 in which the ship suffered serious damage. The Germans began a partial dismantling to recycle her iron and finally on 19 April 1945 the ship was attacked by underwater assault vehicles of the Italian cobelligerent forces, to prevent the Germans from using the big hull and sinking it to block the entry of the port of Genoa. At the end of the war, on April 24th 1945, it was found again floating, half submerged and placed in the middle of the port in an extreme attempt to block the passage in the port. It was towed to La Spezia in 1949, awaiting a decision on its possible re-use for civil use, but once the difficulty and the high cost necessary to bring the ship back to its original state of steamer was found, its demolition was decided upon in 1952. UPON DATA Type Aircraft Carrier Manufacturer Ansaldo - Genoa Final destiny Dismantled in 1952 Displacement 23.500 Gross tonnage 27.800 tsl Length 235,5 m Width 30 m Height 23 m Draught 7,3 m Flight deck length 211.6 - width 25.2 m Propulsion 8 boilers, 4 turbines - Power: 151,000 HP Speed 30 knots (56 km/h) Complement 1420 Armament 8x1 135mm, 12x1 65mm, 132x2 20mm Armour 70 mm vertical, 80 horizontal Aircraft carried 54 (fighters, dive bombers, torpedo bombers) What do you think about this mysterious metal creature? Would it have helped to improve the fate of the sea war for Italy, or would it have only slowed its inevitable fate? I hope this topic gets a bit of your interest and can be an inspiration for the Wargaming developer team. Perhaps they will find it appealing to add this to the still small tech tree of the Italian navy on Warld of Warships!
  2. please don't shoot me WG, can we also have a mug that changes it is icon when adding hot coffee or tea in it? Like having any type of ship (as the one you already have with Bismark) sailing and when you put hot coffee/tea it changes it is icon into Bismark having flames ^_^ Just a funny thought xD

    Cant login with wargaming ID on steam

    so guys before .8.9 you would rename the steam_api_64.dll in the bin64 folder and you could login with your wargaming id on steam, but now this does not seem to work I have renamed the steam_api_64.dll and when I press play in steam the game does not launch. the text 'running' appears next to the games name in steam library and then 'syncing' for a second but the game does not launch.
  4. This post is a must-read for anyone who wishes to reclaim any premium ship ever sold in-game. A big thanks to @MrFingers for this post. https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/9vidaq/psa_policy_for_premium_ship_restoration_got/ Previously there was a pretty big discrepancy between servers in terms of requirements to get a reversal of a selling (accidental or not) of a premium ship. On EU only actions from the last 2 months could be looked at, one had to have played a battle in a ship (proving "active ownership") and there was only one clemency per account, ever. On ASIA only actions from the last 12 months could be looked at, with again only one clemency per account, ever. NA on the other hand had 4 clemencies per year, with 5 ships per clemency, but required "active ownership" and could only look into actions in the running calendar year. This now all got reworked since November 1st, and got harmonised across the globe. Now it boils down to: 1 request every 6 months, but one can add as many ships in 1 request without any limit (you can file 1 request with 20 ships, but not 2 requests with 2 ships, unless the 2nd request happens 6 months after the first one) one has to have the credits & port slot readily available, or the doubloons in case of Perth, Belfast or Kutuzov that got sold during the smoke-rework. That's it. There is no time limit any more during which one had to apply for a clemency. You can now restore (deliberate) mind f***s/errors regardless of when those happened. So CAT/CBT testers who sold their Iwaki/Arkansas in the early days now, in theory, can get them back. I've tried it yesterday to get the Belfast back I sold during the smoke-changes, and after having to escalate an automated bot-response with the link to the article, I got credited with the ship without an issue. Also, event-ships like the ARP-ones fall under this policy.

    I start this post thinking about the past years when this game used to be more skill less chance.Now it seems that if you are lucky you will get maybe another descent player in ranked and perhaps 2-3 in random.Think about it.Containers,MM,Ranked,Clan battles(yes even that,bit less but still)
