Torpedo not a foil. Can't see the point unless to add some lead ballast or as structural support for the foils.I see they have the torpedo foils. Could have delayed the launch after seeing the AM foils! They can only splash 6 foils and may have realized the NZ type foil was inferior?
Do the Italian foils have less area than TNZ and AM. Seems to look like it.
As for hull shape if the aim is to sail the majority or all the race flying, then the Italian hull looks like more drag.
Also surprised that they are not using two different foil designs on either side. With the limit on the total number allowed seems a sensible choice by TNZ
