Ciao Giampiero,

I am still chewing on the tactical value of having 1-2 aircrafts on the Littorio Class (Reggiane Re.2000) which can be only catapulted off the ship once. I understand, the Reggiane Re.2000 was a long range version, which after being catapulted could land on an airfield. However, I am just picturing a mission scenario. The Roma is on a mission, shots of the Re.2000 for fighter support or reconnaissance and that's it. Resupply with the Re.2000 is only possible in harbor or via a supply ship. It's like going to battle with one magazine in my rifle, shoot it off and that's it. Does'nt sound to my like a great idea. I don't get it?

Can you provide any background what the idea behind this concept was?

Secondly, do you happen to know what the color of the floats were (see pic)? I have seen them in all colors: Red, yellow, orange, khaki, light grey (as the superstructure). I have no clue what the original color is.

Thirdly, do you know what the color of the blast bags were (pls. see second picture)? White, khaki or grey?

Hope things ease slowly off in Italy.

Have a great day,

Jack
