Statistics of Regolo class

Note: this class' light cruisers were small and very fast, because they had no armor; this class is to be considered half way between light cruisers and destroyer leaders. Only three of these cruisers were completed in war time: Attilio Regolo, Pompeo Magno e Scipione Africano; other six were launched but they remained uncompleted. Attilio Regolo and Scipione Africano were given to France in 1948, while Pompeo Magno was rescued and refitted after the war; it was used as a destroyer leader and renamed San Giorgio.

Dates of service: construction started in 1939, launched in 1941 (1940 for the Regolo), first commissioned in 1943 (1942 for the Regolo), uncommissioned in 1948 (1950 for the Pompeo Magno)
