S.L.C. 200 "Maiale", 1/35 - 5605

The Siluro a Lenta Corsa (Slow Moving Torpedo), better known as the "Maiale" (Pig), was first developed in 1935 by Captains G.N. Toschi and Tesei; the idea was to place the weapon system, with a crew of two men, beneath the hull of an enemy ship at anchor, and to attach a large delayed explosive charge to a cable between the anti-roll bilge keels. During the Second World War, the SLC damaged and sank 16 vessles in daring and spectacular raids, including the sinking of the two English battleships, Valiant and Queen Elizabeth, for a total gross tonnage shipping of approximately 200,000 tons.

"The closest that allied war correspondents came to describing any Europeans as 'suicide warriors' was the description of the the Italian underwater chariot raiders ...", WWII Nation by Nation, J. Lee Ready.

Markings for one Siluro a Lenta Corsa + color instruction manual. Includes photo etch parts.

M.T.M. "Barchino", 1/35 - 5604

The Barchino was a modified speedboat that was used effectively in the Mediterranean between 1940 and 1942. The first craft appeared in 1936 and the use of these weapons envisaged that the Barchino would approach near to an enemy fleet; the pilot would then attack a specified target at maximum speed in a collision course with the target, ejecting the pilot at approxmately one hundred meters before impact. Craft of this kind were used successfully by the famous WWII Italian Special forces unit, Decima X MAS in operations against the British navy at Suda (Crete) and at Malta.

Markings for one M.T.M. Barchino + color instruction manual. Includes photo etch parts.
