Historical Info

Historical Info

Aquila (Italian for "Eagle") was an Italian aircraft carrier converted from the trans-Atlantic passenger liner SS Roma. During World War II, Work on Aquila began in late 1941 at the Ansaldo shipyard in Genoa and continued for the next two years. With the signing of the Italian armistice on 8 September 1943, however, all work was halted and the vessel remained unfinished. Aquila was eventually scrapped in 1952.
Key Features

Key features

Aquila has access to 2 types of squadrons: attack aircraft and torpedo bombers. The planes have low HP and relatively high speed. Each squadron of attack aircraft has a large number of planes divided into 2 attacking flights and is equipped with accurate armor-piercing rockets. While the rockets deal low damage individually, a well-executed strike can deal good damage to a target. Aquila’s aerial torpedoes enjoy a high base damage.
