Seldom interior images of Italy’s WWII Battleship Roma

0

Battleship Roma (‘Corazzata Roma’) was the fourth Vittorio Veneto-class battleship of Italy’s Regia Marina (Royal Navy). She was laid down almost four years after the first two ships of the class (Impero and Vittorio Veneto) and was commissioned on 14 June 1942.

On 9 September 1943 she was sunk by the German Luftwaffe with a Fritz X radio-controlled bomb. Roma capsized, broke into two, and sank carrying 2 Admirals, 86 Officers and 1264 sailors down with her. She was the pride of the Italian Navy; the most modern and powerful battleship.

Not only she was beautiful from its outside but so was her interior. Argunners Magazine has found, thanks to Marina Militare, incredible images of Battleship Roma’s interior.
