Re: Sovietsky Soyuz class battleships

I'm pretty sure I read that the Soviets were trying to buy the guns from another power indicating that they may not have had the capability of creating her main guns. You are mistaken. The USSR bought projects, instead of ready samples. Projects modified to necessary characteristics and began a bat...

I dont know about the Soyuz though but it might have been in some advanced stage of co...

Re: The Greatest Naval Battle in History

Are the Russians likely to regard a catastrophic defeat as the greatest naval battle? Midway - well maybe. But I would go for Leyte Gulf. For us - yes... :cool: For Russia any sea battle did not become an occasion to the end of war . Leyte - it is appreciable only by quantity of the participating s...
