Posted on January 31, 2012 by

We have some very old photos of the ships of Russian Pacific Fleet for you. Let’s start with protected cruiser Askold. She was built for the Imperial Russian Navy. She was named after the legendary Varangian Askold. Her thin, narrow hull and maximum speed of 23.8 knots (44.1 km/h) were considered impressive for the time.

Protected cruiser Boyarin was built by Burmeister & Wain in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The Oslyabya was a battleship of the Russian Imperial Navy, belonging to the Peresvet-class. She was named for Rodion Oslyabya, a 14th century monk of the Troitse-Sergiyeva Lavra and a hero of the Battle of Kulikovo.

    My great-grandfather served on Tsesarevich as a writer. It´s an interesting fact, that the ship took part of search-and-rescue operation after Messina earthquake in 1908 and the whole crew recived a great recognition and high awards for that.
