"In August 1942, during Operation Pedestal (referenced in Italian sources as Battaglia di Mezzo Agosto) two motosiluranti—MS 16 and MS 22—sank in a night action the British light cruiser HMS Manchester. This 11,000-ton cruiser was the largest warship sank by fast torpedo craft in the Second World War. Two MS boats were used to infiltrate a party of 14 Italian marines behind the Allied lines in Egypt on 3 September 1942. The marines blew up a railway and anaqueduct before being captured."

Although it is famous in popular history for its heavy defeats at cape Matapan and the Taranto attack...

...the Regia Marina was actually a very good navy that the British Royal Navy took no less seriously than the German Kriegsmarine.

The Holes for the anchors, the main guns, and the area behind the smoke stack are currently uncharted territory for me.
