0004 – DREADNOUGHT FOR BLOCKADE SERVICE – “C” project – L.B.P. 125,80m – Scale 1:200

One of the four 1905 projects for a  blockade service specifically studied dreadnought.

The project, from Capt. Vittorio Cuniberti of the Navy Engineering Corp, was never realized, but we can present a well detailed and perfectly preserved original set of plans (8 plates) with:  lines and profile, longitudinal section, cross sections (six), overview with cannons accomodation and both upper and lower hold decks.

The ship was expected to be armed with four 203mm cannons in twin towers, eighteen 76/50mm cannons (plans available at code 2531) and two torpedo launcher tubes
