flag Francesco Ferruccio - Italian Tier VII Premium Cruiser 1939

The project of a "long-range light cruiser" was developed as part of a program that involved the construction of several dozen ships of various types for Italian Navy operations in the Indian Ocean. One of the first sketches of an 8,000-ton cruiser was an unusual-looking ship with 152 mm guns housed in quadruple-gun turrets. Among her other features were a long operational range (above 27,000 km) and 90 mm dual-purpose guns that were designed in 1939.

RN Francesco Ferruccio Flag.
Francesco Ferruccio, one of the famous Italian commanders of the 16th century, became renowned for fighting for the independence of the Republic of Florence. Stories about him became especially popular during the period of the unification of Italy.

Key Features

  • The ship is armed with eight 152mm main battery guns with great firing range and quick turret traverse time, but limited firing angles. The aft-end main battery turret can rotate 360 degrees. 
  • She has access to HE- and SAP-shells with flat ballistics that allows her to shoot over long distances, however, her damage per minute is not the highest. 
  • Additionally, she is equipped with two quadruple-tube torpedo launchers – torpedoes have good range, but their speed and damage are low.
  • The ship has poor armor and a low HP pool, but high speed and good maneuverability, as well as excellent concealment. 
  • She has access to Exhaust Smoke Generator and can choose between Fighter or Spotting Aircraft.
