Battleship Navarin

Battleship Navarin, a pre-dreadnought battleship built for the Imperial Russian Navy in the late 1880s.
She was assigned to the 2nd Pacific Squadron to relieve the Russian forces blockaded in Port Arthur. During the Battle of Tsushima in May 1905, she was sunk by Japanese destroyers which spread twenty-four linked mines across her path during the night. Navarin struck two of these mines and capsized with the loss of most of her crew.
