Sorry, I didn't realize I hadn't included that one until later.
How big would you say is the Italian Navy compared to the other major non-USN naval forces?
Someone should probably do something regarding the development of naval technology in the world of Footprint of Mussolini. Well military tech in general.France-tier.
The fact that he could be considered a "hero" says more about the world around him than it does about anything good he did.So ends Italy's Il Duce.
Mussolini TTL was a villain in a world full of heroes and monsters alike; no doubt wicked, yet with a humanity that distinguishes him from those who dared take steps even he would not.
I dunno...I really like the look of the Mangusta...I just dunno if it could be made a decade earlier though...I’ll miss ya Mussolini, you were the greatest dictator of all. I wonder how Italian aviation technology will advance? Perhaps the Italians will make an ITTL version of the Mil Mi-24 Hind Attack Helicopter?
Seems like his empire will survive him by about twenty years maybe a bit more, not so bad for a non monarchy autocrat's legacy. And we will have to see what the shape of Italy will be after the One Party State ends.So Mussolini dies, and yet his empire lives on for a while longer.
But at the same time, Mussolini's death means that its all downhill from here. At least Germany and Hungary gets back/keeps its monarchy though so...*shrugs*
Huh. The image of Bruno you used reminded me that Vento Aureo as we know it is butterflied (unless Passione flees from Italy and sets up shop in NYC, becoming one of the Five Families or perhaps even the Six Families in TTL's version of Part 5).To the Greatest Dictator ITTL, Caesar of Italy...
