THE MURMANSK The Murmansk started as the USS Milwaukee CL-5 in 1922. It discovered the deepest part in the Atlantic Ocean named the "Milwaukee Deep". Russia acquired the ship in 1944. In 1949 the ship was returned to the states and scrapped. Photo collection of USS Milwaukee CL-5 http://www.navsource.org/archives/04/005/04005.htm Would anyone have more detailed info to share? Video clips? Rare photos? Logbooks? And what do you like or dislike about this ship? CONFUSION? This link shows the Sverdlov-class light cruiser also called Murmansk. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_cruiser_Murmansk Not the ship we are talking about on this post. Wikipedia has it linked to the USS Milwaukee page which is getting the info all mixed up.
