Before WW2 broke out, in the mid 30's Romania intended to expand it's navy to protect the shores and important trade routes of the Black sea against Turkey and the Soviet Union. For this plan Romania asked Italy to provide the ships. First it was asked for a larger big gunned cruiser, basically the Italian version of the German Deutschlands the UP-102 in 1936. 2 years later in 1938 OTO (Odero Terni Orlando) (The later OTO-Malera and OTO-Breda company) provided a much more economical design of Scout cruiser or smaller light cruiser, essentially the Italian version of the Japanese Oyodo class. Neither of these two crusiers were able to acquire Romania before WW2 broke out.

 

The data for the design as follows:
Date of design: 1938

Dimensions: 140m x 16,2m
Displacement: 4.500tons standard, 6.000tons maximum
Engine Power: 75.000shp, 2 shafts

Maximum Speed: 67km/h (37knots)

Armour: Belt: 52mm, Deck: 25mm
Armaments:

Some sources states:

2x3 152mm Guns

3x2 102mm DP-AA Guns
12x1 20mm Machine Guns

1x3 533mm Torpedo Tubes

6x Arado Ar 196 seaplanes

Or as the image shows:

2x3 152mm Guns

4x2 37mm Machine Guns
4x1 13mm Machine Guns

1x3 533mm Torpedo Tubes

6x Arado Ar 196 seaplanes

Ciao, questa sezione è strettamente destinata ai progetti di navi non realizzate, non è dedicata a discussioni riguardo World of Warships. Inoltre al momento si può discutere nel forum solo in inglese, prima o poi dovrebbero essere aperte sezioni in altre lingue.

Comunque immagino che la classe Littorio verrà certamente introdotta quando (se) aggiungeranno un tech tree italiano.


Hello, this section is strictly about projects of never-were ships, it's not dedicated to discussions about World Warships. Also at the moment we can discuss in the forum only in English language, sooner or later they should open sections in other languages.

Anyway I think that Littorio class will be certainly implemented when (if) they will add an Italian tech tree.
