?===History=== 
 ''Zara'' was a heavy cruiser built for the Italian Regia Marina (Royal Navy), the lead ship of the ''Zara'' class. Named after the Italian city of Zara (now Zadar, Croatia), the ship was built at the Odero-Terni-Orlando shipyard beginning with her keel laying in July 1928, launching in April 1930, and commissioning in October 1931. Armed with a main battery of eight 8-inch (200 mm) guns, she was nominally within the 10,000-long-ton (10,000 t) limit imposed by the Washington Naval Treaty, though in reality she significantly exceeded this figure. <br /> ''Zara'' was a heavy cruiser built for the Italian Regia Marina (Royal Navy), the lead ship of the ''Zara'' class.

 ''Zara'' saw extensive service during the first two years of Italy's participation in World War II, having taken part in several sorties to catch British convoys in the Mediterranean as the flagship of the 1st Division. She was present during the Battle of Calabria in July 1940, the Battle of Taranto in November 1940, and the Battle of Cape Matapan in March 1941. In the last engagement, ''Zara'' and her sister ships ''Fiume'' and ''Pola'' were sunk in a close-range night engagement with three British battleships. Most of her crew, 783 officers and sailors, including the divisional commander Admiral Carlo Cattaneo, were killed in the sinking. ''Zara'' saw extensive service during the first two years of Italy's participation in World War II, having taken part in several sorties to catch British convoys in the Mediterranean as the flagship of the 1st Division.

 +===Historical Inaccuracies===
 +* In-game model is actually ''Gorizia'', ''Zara'''s sister ship.
 +* Original 1931 condition is missing. See [[Gorizia]] for the near historical version.
 +* Both hull modules have unhistorical AA. ''Zara'' was armed with four twin 37 mm Breda anti-aircraft guns, four twin 13.2 mm machine guns and six twin 100 mm dual-purpose guns. The last surviving ship, ''Gorizia'', had six twin 37 mm Breda AA guns, fourteen 20 mm Breda guns (six twin and two single mounts) and six twin 100 mm DP guns.
 +* Two 120 mm star shell guns are missing. ''Zara'', ''Fiume'' and ''Pola'' still carried them at the time of their sinking while ''Gorizia'' used them until 1942.
 +* The ''Zara'' class were originally designed with torpedo tubes, but these were subsequently removed from the design in an attempt to keep displacement below the limits of the Washington Naval Treaty.

Zara — Italian Tier VII cruiser.

During the pre-war period, she was one of the best heavy cruisers in the world. The ship differed favorably from most contemporary counterparts by her good armor protection and overall well-balanced characteristics, but most of all, by her armament and speed.
