Aquila ("Eagle") was an Italian aircraft carrier converted from the trans-Atlantic passenger liner SS Roma during World War II. Work on Aquila began in late 1941 at the Ansaldo shipyard in Genoa and continued for the next two years. With the signing of the Italian armistice on 8 September 1943, however, all work was halted and the vessel remained unfinished. Aquila was eventually scrapped in 1952.
Aquila uses a composite bow as her main way to launch aircraft. This is a reference to the Re.2005 Kai, which is also known as the Re.2005 Sagittario (Sagittarius), from Greek mythology, who is also depicted using a similar bow.
