What if Prince Amadeo d'Aosta was sent to Libia instead of Balbo?


He had an army that seemed overall more competent than the army in ASI. But was he the factor for that?
Still i am not seeing much influence of Balbo in ASI army, he certainly did not handled the military day to day. Did not build a motorized unit with assets at hand, while he probably could not go over the RE leadership to formally establish one i think he could have done much more than what a bunch of nothing he did. I guess only the parachute battalions can be called to be his hand.
