The Guardia di Finanza is an Italian military body that was established in 1861, its main task was to guard customs and contrast smuggling, in case of war it had to defend the national borders, as happened in the two world wars. Currently, the Guardia di Finanza is a highly specialized body for the fight against crime and terrorism, its air vehicles and naval are at the forefront. The naval sector of the Guardia di Finanza is made up of patrol vessels and coastguards such as the Corrubia Class, the 12 units of this class set up in early 90s and entered into service between 1995/1997, they are built in composite material, they are the result of a very advanced project that lasted years and also developed through mathematical models and hydrodynamic studies in the naval tank. The units have been made of composite materials and thanks to the extraordinary marine qualities of the hull, they reach a continuous maximum speed of 43 knots and constitute a modern and versatile multi-role tactical platform. The units are equipped with sophisticated electronic equipment such as dual radar systems and telecommunication systems and have a modern command and control system with data-link transmission of operational information. The engine system consists of 2 powerful 3482 HP MTU type 16V396TB94 engines. The main armament consists of 1 single-barreled 30 / 82mm Breda cannon enslaved by an automatic Medusa Elsag aiming system, the secondary armament consists of 2 MG 42 caliber 7.62. The gunboat Corrubia should be added to the Coastal Fleet Italy because although she is a modern boat her armament is not superior to other similar ships already present in War Thunder.
