Have you heard of another Regia Marina Cruiser?

Capitani Romani were originally classed as "OCEAN SCOUTS" (Esploratori Oceanici), although some authors consider them to have been " heavy destroyers. "

 

Like " ATLANTA " for being the large destroyers, Capitani Romani is good for Clubbing Destroyers with its 135mm Main Gun or Frustrate enemy Battleships.

 

TIERS SUGGESTION : V or VI

Class : " LIGHT CRUISER "  ( Flotilla Leader )

HP Suggestion : 22.500 - 25.000 ( Duca D Aosta is 29.700 )

PREMIUM OR REGULAR : DEPENDS ON WG.

Armaments :4x8 135mm /45 Italian Naval Gun

Torpedo : 8x533mm Torpedo Tubes

Speed : 41 Knots ( Standard ) / 43 Knots ( On Trials )

 

Consumables Suggestion :

Damage Control Party ( OBVIOUSLY )

Surveillance Radar or Hydro Acoustic

 

PROS :

41 Knots - High Speed Makes its quite fast for a Light Cruiser.

GUFO Radar means this is the only Cruiser in Tier V or VI had Surveillance Radar which made destroyers life difficult or able to use Hydro Acoustic .

4x2 8 135mm Gun had outstanding ROF , great idea for against destroyers or frustrate enemy Battleships.

Medium-high velocity of 825 MPS

High Rate of fire of 6 - 7 Rounds per minute.

 

Cons :

The armor is made out of thin sheets, it has the laughable joke armor ever that a cruiser with nearly 150mm Above may cause citadel upon you.

Low Caliber which made hard time for her to actually damage anything.

Anti Aircraft Guns is solid but unremarkable, let alone for All Bark no bite.

( THERE MORE I NEED TO DO LATER )

interesting ship, sounds like she would fit into tier 5 because at tier 6 there is already duca and there is every reason to buy that over this. Probably give this ship sonar and  some other weegee gimmick

Capitani Romani would be nice for added premium or FREE Exp. But as for Tiers , i think she could be the first ship to have early Radar since it has GUFO sensor.

Therefore its just like poor man's Atlanta version but with only ABXY over Atlanta ABQXYZ Configuration plus Romani has better caliber of 135mm gun.
