Italy, 1944. As the war takes its toll on Allied forces in Europe, a squadron of black pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen are finally given the chance to prove themselves in the sky - even as they battle discrimination on the ground. It's a tribute to the unsung heroes who rose above extraordinary challenges and ultimately soared into history.

When the pilots attack the German Navy vessel, it is referred to as a "destroyer". However, the close ups of the attack reveal the vessel has multiple 8-12 inch guns in armored turrets, which would make it at least a cruiser and maybe even a light battleship. See more
