    Sisoy great battleship

    smaller version of Navarino with higher freeboard and reservation system like the English battleships type "Royal Soverin." Was too small for his arms (the first among Russian battleships received 305 mm guns of new systems).

    Overall

    "Sisoy Great" would be a very powerful and successful ship, if not traditional for the Russian shipbuilding pursuit of questionable savings. The desire to make a new ship smaller than Navarino, led ultimately to the more extreme forces. And if the project "Sisoy Great" was 600 tonnes lighter Navarino, the placement of new weapons, equipment and unplanned weight discipline poor compliance during construction led to the actual displacement exceeded estimated at 1,600 tons, and increased sediment at 0, 9 am, of course, is not to the best effect on the fighting qualities of the ship.

    During the service "Sisoy Great" made several voyages abroad (the Mediterranean, the Far East).

    In

    Tsusimcky Strait received about 14 shells hit the 152-305mm (20 killed, 46 people wounded), and at night - torpedo aft to starboard. At 9.00 on May 15 was scuttled by the crew, with another 39 people drowned (with 35o. W., In 130 °. Etc.).
