THE TARANTO RAID 1940 from HMS ILLUSTRIOUS. The Taranto Raid is what gave Yamamoto the idea and inspiration to attack Pearl Harbor, yet the to attacks differ. The British Carrier Illustrious used 21 Fairey Swordfish Torpedo Bombers (the Swordfish is a bi-plane) in a attack that lasted 2 days (the attack actually happened before 12:00 midnight, but lasted past that), and unlike Pearl Harbour, the Italians could never recover from the Attack on November 11 and 12, 1940. What is worst, 3 battleships, 1 cruiser, and 2 destroyers, half the Italian fleet, not to mention Italy's industry couldn't produce aircraft fast enough, so how could they replace the ships sunk.
