"Sverdlov" class cruiser, 1:350 . Another addition to my naval collection. Soviet light cruiser pr.68bis, scale 1:350 . The Sverdlov-class cruisers, Soviet designation Project 68bis, were the last conventional gun cruisers built for the Soviet Navy. They were built in the 1950s and were based on Russian, German, and Italian designs and concepts developed prior to the Second World War. They were modified to improve their sea keeping capabilities, allowing them to run at high speed in the rough waters of the North Atlantic. The basic hull was more modern and had better armor protection than vast majority of the post World War Two gun cruiser designs built and deployed by peer nations. They also carried an extensive suite of modern radar equipment and anti-aircraft artillery. The cruiser was very successful and considered to be one of the best artillery cruisers in the world. Relatively simple in design they allowed the Soviet Union in the difficult postwar years to quickly restore the power of the Navy. Total planned to build over 30 ships, however, due to the rapid development of new types of weapons (missiles, jet aircraft, nuclear submarines) cruiser was quickly obsolete, and a series of restricted units 14. My model is sustained in the scale of 1: 350, for the construction took 1020 (763) pieces. One of the cruisers, "Mikhail Kutuzov", currently located in Novorossiysk and turned into a Museum ship. Traditional postage stamp :) Compare with 1:700 scale model. Over the years of service of the cruiser repeatedly upgraded, dismantled torpedo tubes, installed new electronic warfare and communications systems, as well as the latest 30-mm flak AK-230. Several ships were converted into command ships with the installation of powerful information systems, and space for the deployment of staff. The most interesting upgrade in my opinion was the cruiser "Dzerzhinsky", rebuilt the project 70E. Instead of one feed of the towers of the main fire and control artillery fire, the cruiser was set experimental anti-aircraft missile system M2 comprising the twin launcher, 10 SAM and radar fire control. It was a naval version of the latest by the time of the complex S75 Dvina (NATO designation - SA2 Guideline). Liked this ship? Please feel free to criticize, comment on, or click here! :-)
