    Honestly Italian shipbuilding is so underrated

    Very advanced and can compete with many of the worlds best including the Asian giants

    When other European countries have failed Italy has succeeded

    Overall they can put together a very decent force

    And they are ambitious this carrier is largest since WWII

    Twin island on a small warship shouldn’t look good but they have done a fine job

    On the ship the Italian Navy also installs a sky jump for V / STOL aircraft, the works are progressing rapidly.

    Beautiful new LHD and from thje looks of it, very capable too.

    Youtube - Launch of LHD 'Trieste' for the Italian Navy



    Displaces 32,500 tons
    Can carry up to 15 F-35Bs
    Carriers anti-air missiles, up to 16 Ater 15 and 30, or up to 32 CAMM ER missiles

    460 crew
    Max of 1064 Marines

    Like I said, a good LHD with a very decent well deck for 4 LCUs or 1 LCAC and hangar for the helos and fighters.

    Nope...there is no kit in 1/350 scale that I am aware of. If there was, I'd love to do it...but would rather have the Cavour first.
