Programmes: Following a study phase which included significant changes to
the initial configuration of the Nuova Unita Maggiore (NUM) design, the
Italian government placed a contract with Fincantieri, worth an estimated
US$780 million, for the construction of a ship to replace Vittorio Veneto
in 2007. First steel cut 17 July 2001. Capabilities include afloat
command, air and amphibious operations. The ship is being constructed at
Muggiano (bow) and Riva Trigoso (centre and stern) and will be joined,
outfitted and tested at Muggiano. A second contract, for the development
and supply of the combat system was signed with an AMS-led industrial
group in October 2002.
Structure: The flight deck features six helicopter take-off spots, eight
parking spots and a 12є ski jump. A notional air group includes 12 EH-101
helicopters and 8 AV-8B Harrier IIs. There is provision in the design to
operate JSF and UAVs. The hangar/garage can accommodate various
combinations of aircraft and vehicles (including MBT and trucks). There
are two 30 ton lifts, one forward of the island and the other starboard
side aft. Two Ro-Ro ramps are positioned aft and starboard side. Two 15
ton and one 7 ton lifts are fitted for ordnance and logistic needs
