Looking Grande

Salute 2019 is approaching quickly – it’s earlier than usual, April 6th, so is just over three weeks away. As always we’ll have a raft of new releases, and today is the day we start previewing them.

First on the list is this splendid example of Italianate aerial architecture – its full title is the battlecruiser Grande Ammiraglio dei cieli Silvio la Verde, although we’ll shorten that down to the la Verde class so it fits in the catalogue. It’s the largest vessel in the Italian Aeronef fleet and is often used as a fleet flagship. The la Verde class are sleek, speedy and manoeuvrable with heavy hitting power, although let down by weak armour in some areas.
