In 1935, an Italian lieutenant conceived the SLC “Maiale” also known as Il Maiale, the Pig or SLC (Siluri a Lenta Corsa, meaning of Slow Speed Torpedo). During World War II, well-trained Gamma Group together with this secret navel weapon SLC “Maiale” damaged up to 16 naval vessels for a gross tonnage of approximately 200,000 to reverse Italy’s battle disadvantage. The SLC Maiale was electrically propelled with detachable warhead. Two Gamma Group crewmen steered at slow speed to the enemy warship and anchored a delayed burst explosive charge to a cable taut between the anti-roll bilge keels. They then fled the scene as soon as possible. 9Maiali bring you this limited edition of 99 handcrafted Jumbo SLC "Maiale" Model!
