for *really* now... in a very recent conference the CSM of Italian Navy
has anticipated the formal request of doing coast shelling
(coincidentally, aside Nave Bersagliere, Nave Margottini is starting the
final trials, so I suspect that this record ends beaten soon....)

:)

Best regards from Italy,
dott. Piergiorgio.

whose was a lost opportunity for RN; I remain convinced that a Tovey, or
Somerville, or Holland will have exploited the stroke of luck... for me
ABC remain the worst RN Admiral.
