Soldati-class Destroyer



This article refers to the entire Soldati-class; it is not about an individual vessel.

ww2dbaseThe Soldati-class destroyers, also known as the Camicia Nera-class, were all named after professions or organizations associated with the Italian military. The first batch of 12 Soldati-class destroyers were built in 1938 and 1939, and the second batch of 7 were built in 1942. Two of the ships in the second batch were not completed. Some of the second batch ships had radar installed. They were the largest destroyers in Italian service during WW2.
