    Italian Heavy Cruiser


    Italian heavy cruiser Zara opens up with her main guns in this undated photo. Zara, commissioned in 1930, was sunk during the Battle of Cape Matapan on March 29, 1941. On the same day, Fiume, Zara's sister ship, Pola, another Zara-class cruiser, and two destroyers, were also sunk by British battleships pinpointing the Italian ships with their newly acquired radar.
