Notes: Don't Be Fooled Between Izmail/Borodino Class Battlecruiser and Borodino Class Pre Dreadnought Battleship.



The Borodino class was a class of five pre-dreadnought battleships built for the Imperial Russian Navy around the end of the 19th century. Their design was based on that of the French-built Tsesarevich, but modified to use Russian equipment. The first four ships were finished after the start of the Russo-Japanese War of 1904–05 and among the ships ordered to sail from the Baltic Sea to the Far East to relieve the Pacific Squadron besieged by the Japanese in Port Arthur. Three of these ships were sunk and one was captured by the Imperial Japanese Navy at the Battle of Tsushima in 1905. The fifth and final ship, Slava, was not completed in time to participate in the war and served with the Baltic Fleet through World War I. She spent most of the war defending the Gulf of Riga and was badly damaged by German dreadnoughts during the Battle of Moon Sound in 1917. This damage forced the ship to scuttle herself because she had taken on too much water and could not pass through the shallow channel that connected the Gulf of Riga with the Baltic. The wreck was scrapped during the 1930s by the Estonians.

Sadly no pre-dreadnoughts will feature in the game according to the devs. The earliest it will go back is 1906 starting with HMS Dreadnought herself.  The Borodino's were constructed in 1905.
