Have just finished reading about the war in the Med and the capabilities of the Italian battleships, it said that there was considerable amount of dispersion of their main guns when firing at long range. Would they have been able to correct this without taking the whole turret to pieces in dock?
Also, later in the war we sent a convoy escorted by Nelson, Rodney, PoW and Ark Royal which the Italians hoped to counter by sending no less than 5 battleships against them. It never happened, but if they had met in battle, any bets on the result?
