Ships in class: 4
The Oriani class of destroyers were a small class, comprising only four vessels. They were an incremental improvement over the preceding Maestrale class, featuring somewhat improved speed and AA mountings. Two of the ships would be sunk at the Battle of Matapan. The two survivors, Alfredo Oriani and Vincenzo Gioberti would see significant refits, trading a torpedo mount for additional AA weapons and ASW capabilities.
