  • Again the class page doesn't appear in the description section.
    • Noted in the lede
  • "The ship saw no combat during the war and spent most of it at anchor. " For reference, note which war you're referring to.
    • Noted in the lede
  • Also with above, any idea where she was anchored during the war?
    • No, but Taranto was the main fleet base during the war.
  • "The subsequent investigation blamed Austro-Hungarian saboteurs, but unstable propellant may well have been responsible." -- it might be interesting to note what evidence, if any, points to this. (People love mysteries)
    • From 1900 ammunition explosions caused the loss of 2 Italian, 2 French, 3 British, 1 Russian, and 2 Japanese battleships and armored cruisers while at anchor. The fact that she was moving ammunition earlier in the day _may_ mean that ammunition mishandling was involved and that the Italian investigation may have concluded saboteurs to cover up incompetence. Most researchers aren't willing to rule out ammunition, no matter what the investigation said.
  • In references but not used: Faccaroli; Stille
    • Moved.
  • Two duplicate links: casemates, forecastle
    • Removed.
  • No dab links. External links appear to be fine.
  • The images appear to be properly lisenced. I see no problems with article stability or neutrality.
Placing the article on hold pending a few points. —Ed!(talk) 12:18, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
