classe Orizzonte – ExTra REPORTS
Description: The Orizzonte class is a class of missile, anti-aircraft, and stealth destroyers. The project was a joint development between Italy and France; at the start of the project, the UK was in the project too, but they left to make their own destroyer (type 45, which in part is based on Orizzonte’s projects). This ship is equipped with modern joint development technologies like the PAAMS anti-aerial system and SLAT for anti-torpedo defense. In the Italian navy, the Horizon class is called the Andrea Doria class or Orizzonte class; they were made to replace the two Audace class destroyers. The first unit, Andrea Doria D553, was launched on October 15, 2005, and she entered service on December 22, 2007. She took part in various NATO training operations and other anti-piracy operations like Ocean Shield. The second unit, Caio Duilio D554, was launched on October 23, 2007, and she entered the Italian Navy in 2009. She took part in Nato training operations like Proud Manta in the Ionian Sea on February 17, 2011, the Steadfast Jazz Training Operation in 2013 in the waters of northern Europe, and others.
