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.

  1. 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.

  2. The ship(s) on picture labelled as “Gunboat Gremyaschy” is (are) not “Gunboat Gremyaschy” She is (they are) Borodino class battleship(s).
