When (he I'mal l)iitllo of Tu'nisiii i,s concluded, the Kalian navy will bo nnlcrcd by Hitler to attempt to rescue the Axis Africa iii'iny, or to stand by to repel an Allied invasion of Kurojic. From past experience, the Itidiiin navy has learned Una it is no match for the British fleet, so if i't moves out it will be in the nature of a do-or-dic light at Hitler's command. iMussolini had nn imposing fleet 4 — , when he took llaly into war that faleful June 10, 1940. He had four batlleships built and two .more building; 21 cruisers; Cl destroyers; 101 submarines, and 142 torpedo boats. Since then, however, the Italians themselves admitted Ihe loss of 1G deslroyers. eight cruisers, 3G submarines, 13 auxiliaries and 16 torpedo boats. Actual Italian losses probably have been much Rr-catcr. And in addition, it is known that the British have sunk or crippled four of II .Duce's battleships, two of which probably have been repaired and are ready again for action. Italy's Own Figures ' Trrus, calculating from Italy's own admission of losses, the Italian fleet today stands at aboul four battleships, 1.1 ci.ulsets, 45 destroyers. G8 submarines and 13G submarines and 136 torpedo boats. Those figures are probably close (o correct, save in the submarine category on which there is no accurate estimate. Many Italian submarines have been sunk in the battle of the Atlantic but the exact figures' never have been revealed because of the nature of submarine warfare. It is doubtful whether the Italians have added many units to their surface fleet since the war began because of - n scarcity of materials and because Axis naval strategy of late has been confined almost solely to submarine war. Construction ' of-: other: units<.-has been sacrificed fn the'interest of more submarines. And it's safe to say that a goodly portion of Italy's submarine strength is' 1 ' operating in the Atlantic with a comparative few remaining in the Mediterranean. Italy's fleet was built on the theory that armor had to be sacrificed for speed. And in addition, is known that the British have sunk or crippled four of 11 Duce's battleships, two of whch probably have been repaired and ready for action. Idea Wouldn't Work The idea was that the fleet would dash out from its bases and with its superior speed hire enemy ships within range of Italian airpower which would make mince-meat of the opposing fleet . The theory seemed sound enough, but the Italians reckoned without British carrier-based airplanes which not only could handle attacking enemy planes but also strike heavy blows at the Italian fleet in its own lair. The British naval-air attack on Taranto in November of 1940 was a case in point. Three of Italy's battleships, two cruisers and several smaller ships were knocked mil, at least temporarily, In that raid which shattered Italy's concepts of naval warfare.. Four months after Taranto, in March of 1311, Britain '5 aerial torpedoes again caught up with the Italian fleet in the Eastern Mediterranean. One of her iwo 35,000 ton bailie ships was crippled in that attack and three of her finest cruisers were sunk. Situation Favors Allies In those days, the British had to rely on their carrier - based planes to catch up with the elusive and fast - moving Italian .Navy. Now, the situation has changed, toll] tactically and strategically. The entire southern rim of the Mediterranean and will be in Allied hands when the Tunisian lip is Iin-)ly overrun. Allied planes based ashore from Suez to Morocco can cover the whole Mediterranean which Mussolini boastfully uscrt to call "our sen." And if the Italian licet ventures out, there Is certain to be a sea and air battle rivaling the biggest that have taken place in Ihc Pacific. Axis planes operating from the northern shore of the Mediterranean will clash with Allied planes operating from the southern rim while the opposing fleets battle il out on the surface. The side with a preponderance in air power probably will triumph. From the looks of things now, the impending battle seems Inclined in favor of the Allies although nothing is certain In war. Mussolini lias been hoarding Ills fleet for many months, probably as a club with which to prevent the Germans from taking over Italy completely. His grip on that club now is being weakened by the approaching climax In Tunisia and by the growing threat to Italian soil. Hitler still is boss and what he says goes, so If he orders Ihe Italian fleet out into the Mediterranean, II Duce can have noth- Lloyd Clark Is Sentenced To Five Years On Charge ,0f Burglary Final session of Criminal Division.
