« on: September 17, 2011, 01:14:58 PM »
Good day this is the first quesion I have posted on this iste. I am in the process of writing an artical for "Over the Front" magazine on the 12 September 1916 air attack on the Russian Battleship Slava can anyone help me? I have the books "Expendable Glory" and "The Russian Fleet 1914-1917"  but am looking for more information on the Russian side. i would like to know the names of all the Russian ships present.  i have the Cruiser Diana with 4 big destroyers possibly Novik class and the Slava with 5 or 6 destroyers does anyone know their names? The action took place in the Gulf of Riga. Thanks in advance.

In summer 1916, the Russian navy squadron in the Gulf of Riga included at least the following ships: the battleship Slava, the gunboats Grozyaschii and Khrabryi, the destroyers Sibirskii Strelok, Gaidamak, Ussuriets, Vsadnik, Amurets, Stereguschii, Voiskovoi, Donskoi Kazak and the hydroplane transport Orlitsa. Probably there were more.
