News normally focus on the US aircraft carrier battle groups, or how China is building one to challenge it in Asia but Italian Navy's Cavour aircraft carrier battle group is rarely mentioned.
The  Italian Navy's Cavour aircraft carrier can support 8 AV-8B Harrier or F-35 joint strike fighter VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft and 12 helicopters EH101, NH 90.

The  Cavour aircraft carrier can support V/STOL and helicopter air operations and transport up to 24 Ariete MBTs or 50 Dardo infantry fighting vehicle (IFV).
