Regia Marina Losses in WW2 Infographic.

This WW2 infographic visualizes the losses suffered by the Regia Marina in terms of cruisers and battleships sunk between 1940-1943. Losses are split into four categories. They include air attacks, submarine strikes, warship gunfire, or torpedo. Although refloated after the Taranto raid, the battleship Cavour was never fully repaired. Therefore, the Cavour is arguably a total loss.

Numbers are not certain for some of the later models, therefore we have included minimum and maximum estimates reported by sources.
