The Zara class was an Italian heavy cruiser design of the Regia Marina from the early 1930s, considered by many to be one of the best cruiser designs of World War II. Four ships of the class were completed, Zara, Fiume, Pola and Gorizia, all of which saw extensive service during the war. Extras such as a high superstructure and torpedo tubes were removed in an effort to save weight. The removal of the superstructure made placement of radar difficult, and in the end none of the class would ever carry one. This would prove to be a deadly mistake.
Zaras were organized into their own 1st Division of three ships (the fourth being held in reserve) and operated in most early naval actions. During this part of the war the Zaras were a serious problem for the Royal Navy, which fielded nothing comparable in the Mediterranean Sea, and were seriously outgunned by them during the inconclusive Battle of Calabria and Battle of Cape Spartivento.
However, Zaras were eventually taken to task during the Battle of Cape Matapan. After Pola was hit by an air-dropped torpedo and stopped, the rest of the 1st Division ran in to protect her. Three Royal Navy battleships and a host of additional units were able to sneak up on them at night —the lack of radar on Zaras making them unaware of their approach— and quickly sank all three and two escorting destroyers in a one-sided gunfight. The Regia Marina was not prepared to fight at night and their guns were in their rest positions when British fire started.
The product contains four resolutions of the model, which are highly detailed and textured.
This model is a 3DMax model, saved in version 7 as a MAX file, and requires 3DMax or Gmax to open the model. It does not include any other formats to allow it to be opened in any other software. The model is mapped and textured.
