Ponte di lancio = flight deck
Ponte di atterraggio = landing deck

So I would venture a guess from the drawing that the deck for launching planes is under the deck for landing on planes. I wonder if they steam in reverse during launching operations?

Ah, understood. So, its essentially double-deck design, just reversed.

Excellent assessment of the strengths and falls of the Pugliese TDS. But the real jem is the reference to the Ansaldo's engineers examination of Sovetskaya Ukraina. Has anyone the report they produced on project 23?

Thank you!

The parts I included in regards to the investigation by Ansaldo engineers of Sovetskaya Ukrania (Campagnoli and Carlarino) were related in Stefano Sappino's book Aircraft Carrier Impero, and his source was the personal archives of Lino Campagnoli (Archivio Privato Campagnoli), with the relevant citation being;
‘Note ed osservazioni tecniche Sebastopoli, August 1942’.


Information as provided by the book;

It is also noteworthy that the system, as installed in the Sovetsky Soyuz-class, did not incorporate a triple bottom (instead it had only a double bottom), and the maximum diameter of the absorbing cylinder was quite small at maximum thickness - 3.15 meters. For reference, the corresponding figure for the system as installed on the Littorio-class was 3.8 meters, while the rebuilt Conte di Cavour and Duilio had a 3.4-m diameter absorbing cylinder.
