Splitted from the topic "What the RN did better then the USN" Well, this is a better place to discus the Italian cruisers than on that topic. All Right then, Tiornu, you said that the armor of the italian cruisers went up by every new class. I did a quick search and i have to agree with you. Armor did went up, though i do think that the Abruzzi class was the only one that was decently armored. As for all the other light cruisers, i do think that they were way to lightly armored, espacially the ones in the beginning of the Contilidori (or something like that ) class. As for the Captian Romani class (have to be honest, i bearly have any info on the armor) i do no statements but i do think that they are also to lighly armored in order to get more speed. they were after all desinged to be scouting cruisers.
