Duca degli Abruzzi class Light Cruisers

d'Abruzzi and Giuseppi Garibaldi were the last full size light cruisers to be built by Italy before World War 2 began. They were beautiful ships and the pride of the RegiaMarina. They survived the war and damage and their excellent hulls were extensively modified in the following decades.

Each ship had 2x3, 2x2 (10) 6" guns, 4x2 3.9" dual purpose guns, and 2x3 21" torpedo tubes

And here is a photo of the cardstock model of them I am designing.
