Oktyabrskaya Revolyutsiya(Gangut)'s sister ship, Frunze(Poltava) still exists, much in the way Gneisenau does, in turret form.

Having been burnt out in a fire in 1919, Frunze pretty much sat tied to a dock and didn't do much until the 40s, where she was used as a barracks hulks and stripped of parts for her sisters.

 

POST-WW2, two of her turrets were placed to defend Sevastopol as Coast Defence Battery 30, or Maksim Gor'kii I.

 

They remained in service with the Russian Navy until 1997

LOL!  You know this could replace golf!  You can put targets down rang and let "players" shot to git the target.  I would be the king of Mulligans.
