Ship project history


Submarine cruiser for service in Red sea and Indian ocean. Design was developed by builder. Single-hulled, with external bulges. According to the design, Ettore Fieramosca should carry a seaplane in watertight hangar. For some reasons aircraft have not created, and in 1931 hangar because of which the diving time has appeared unreasonably long, was liquidated. After that submerged displacement was moderated from 2094 to 1934t and the diving time was a little shrank, though continued to be considered as the excessive.

Ettore Fieramosca, as well as Balilla class, could not reach a designed speed (19/10kts), but, unlike the later, at expense of application of the bulges had better stability.

Modernizations


1931: - 1 x 1 - 120/27, hangar; + 1 x 1 - 120/45 OTO 1931
