World of Warships Russian Navy

By JonCS29
  • Novik

    The pioneer ship of a scout cruiser type, Novik carried rapid-fire guns but was weak in terms of armor. In the course of her service, she was the fastest cruiser in the world.
  • Bogatyr

    The best protected cruiser of its time in the Russian Navy. This ship was based on a project that was notable for its overall well-balanced features and good protection of the ship's numerous main guns, some of which were mounted in turrets. During World War I, the ship was re-armed with more advanced artillery.
  • Aurora

    The last ship in the Pallada class of protected cruisers, Aurora was surpassed in speed by other ships of her type and time. The ship was modernized to receive significantly enhanced armament. As a result, she became superior in artillery firepower to World War I cruisers with similar displacement.
  • Pyotr Velikiy

    Pyotr Velikiy
    One of the variants of the "armored cruiser for the Baltic Sea" project, armed with 356 mm guns (Project 707). She was notable for her high speed and her main battery turrets, two facing forward and two aft, that were positioned along her centerline, with one turret at each end in a super-firing position.
  • Izmail

    A battle cruiser which, at the time of her laying down, claimed to be the world's most powerful warship. She was very similar to battleship Gangut in terms of her layout and armor type, but differed in her larger size, speed and 356 mm main battery guns.
  • Imperator Nikolai I

    Imperator Nikolai I
    The last battleship laid down for the Imperial Russian Navy. Developed from the Imperatritsa Mariya-class battleships, she inherited high firepower from her predecessors. Experience gained in building early Russian dreadnoughts helped to significantly reinforce the ship's armor which received an advanced arrangement.
  • Derzki

    The ship belonged to the first series of Russian destroyers to be equipped with turbines. Derzki boasted good survivability owing to a high speed combined with dimensions that were comparatively large for her time. Until the very end of World War I, she had been unrivaled in terms of the number of torpedoes that could be launched in a broadside salvo.
  • Svietlana

    The first light cruiser with turbine propulsion, laid down for the Imperial Russian Navy. Svietlana was notably faster than her predecessors. Her armor protection and weapons were quite good for her time. The ship's artillery was remarkable for its long range and strong ballistic properties.
  • Gangut

    Was part of the first series of dreadnought battleships built in Russia. She was armed with twelve main battery guns. The ship's features included a significant area of side armor and a general layout providing a full sideboard salvo at the widest possible angles.
  • Storozhevoi

    Designed as a "medium-tonnage" destroyer, this ship was intended to handle a wide range of tasks, from reconnaissance operations and torpedo attacks, to artillery engagements against enemy ships. Owing to high-tech propulsion, she could travel at a very high speed.
  • Okhotnik

    An original project for a unique large destroyer that was created during World War I to remedy the lack of modern cruisers in the Russian Navy. The ship's dimensions — too big for this type — allowed her to carry multiple guns and torpedo tubes.
  • Sinop

  • Izyaslav

    Developed from the legendary Novik-class destroyers, Izyaslav was one of the largest and most powerful destroyers in the Russian Navy. Compared with her predecessors, she was armed with more powerful artillery. Izyaslav was surpassed in torpedo caliber by foreign-built destroyers of her time, which was partly compensated by the number of torpedoes that could be launched in a broadside
  • Krasny Krym

    Krasny Krym
    A light cruiser designed in the 1910s and armed with multiple main guns of a relatively small caliber. By the end of World War II she underwent an upgrade to obtain powerful AA defense and an improved gun fire control system. The ship, however, was inferior to her contemporary ships in speed
  • Podvoisky

    One of the draft designs for the first destroyer flotilla leaders in the U.S.S.R. Unlike destroyers built during the pre-revolutionary period, this ship had greater dimensions, a higher speed and more powerful artillery. Apart from that, she carried torpedoes of a larger caliber.
  • Kotovsky

    One of the first projects of a Soviet light cruiser armed with 152 mm guns. It was a conceptual step forward in comparison to the Svietlana-class ships in terms of her speed, gunfire control system, the arrangement of her main battery artillery, and the strength of her AA defenses.
  • Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya

    Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya
    Until 1925, this Russian battleship was known as Gangut. Designed before World War I, the ship carried main battery guns that were good for her time. In the 1930s, the battleship was upgraded to receive more powerful propulsion, an advanced gun fire control system, and improved AA guns.
  • Vladivostok

  • Lenin

    One of the variants of a high-speed battleship with a 406 mm battery (Project 21), developed under the "Big Fleet" program. A distinctive feature of the Project was the concentration of the main battery turrets in the ship's bow
  • Shchors

  • Poltava

    A Type B battleship project equipped with 356 mm guns was developed simultaneously with a larger Type A battleship. The main purpose of the ship was to oppose enemy cruisers and Scharnhorst-class battleships.
  • Kirov

    One of the first large warships designed and built in the U.S.S.R. (Project 26). Despite her small displacement, she was equipped with very powerful long-range main guns and had a good speed. In contrast to the majority of her contemporaries, Kirov had weak armor.
  • Budyonny

    A light cruiser built under Project 94. The ship was developed from the Kirov-class warships. Unlike her prototype, she was bigger in size and featured significantly enhanced protection. The ship's main guns were smaller in caliber but had a higher rate of fire.
  • Molotov

    Bearing a close resemblance to Kirov-class cruisers, she was based on an improved design (Project 26-bis). In contrast to her prototype, the cruiser received significantly reinforce armor while retaining extremely powerful artillery and a high speed.
  • Soobrazitelny

    Soobrazitelny was one of 18 destroyers built for the Soviet Navy in the late 1930s that were collectively known as Project 7U (Improved). The main changes from the Gnevny class were unit machinery (four boilers instead of three). Fitting the additional machinery in the same hull presented significant challenges, leading to an increase in weight, cramped accommodations, and a reduction in fuel capacity.
  • Pyotr Bagration

    Pyotr Bagration
    A design for a 15,000-ton cruiser carrying 180 mm guns that was developed for the Soviet Navy at the end of World War II under a new shipbuilding program. The project was notable for its AA defenses, which were reinforced based on the experience gained during prior combat.
  • Ognevoi

    Developed from the Gnevny-class destroyers, the ship (Project 30) featured a larger displacement. In contrast to her predecessors, she boasted improved armor protection for artillery and a more powerful torpedo armament.
  • Ochakov

    One of the versions of a project of a small light cruiser (MLK-8-152). Her main battery artillery consisted of dual-purpose 152 mm mounts developed in the U.S.S.R. in the mid-1940s.
