The game has Duca degli Abruzzi which is an evolution of the ship class you mentioned (both being from subclasses of the condottieri class), so I don't think there would be much point having this ship in game. Eventually WG will add a RM cruiser line, until then we just have to be patient.

Thank you for mentioning Duca degli Abruzzi, @blauflamme22 😎😎

Even though we are not able to promise that everything will be actually reflected, we're always open to hear any opinions regarding the ships @PolishLithuania , thank you!

But the Duca degli Abruzzi is a Condottieri class cruiser while the ship I requested was a Alberto da Giussano class cruiser

I rather request a Bolzano or a Capitani Romani or or Zara.

If everyone can get their requested granted, can I ask for the old Minekaze to make a come back?

 

PS, I don't think everyone hated the first ship at all. It's just that these threads have a life of their own, and can go anywhere.

Alberto da giussano class is a sub-class of the condottieri, so while not identical they are quite similar
