Can't post in general for some reason so here it is. The Bogatry(?) and what it looked like in 1961. This was taken in Leningrad.

That would be Aurora

No member of the Bogatyr class survived past 1942.

Wow, you couldn't have linked to the ENGLISH Wiki page?

English wiki has fewer pics.  Whole lot less interesting.

I can not believe you missed the front Monitor style dual gun turret. :Smile_facepalm:

Here is Russian cruiser Aurora wiki with lots of pics: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Аврора_(крейсер)

What dual gun turret? That is a single gun turret in the OP's post and even the link you gave. I don't see a dual gun turret???

The Bogatyr's had a duel gun turret, fore and aft. Ergo, lacking said turret is one (of a few, they have totally different hull designs for another) signs the Op's pic is not the Bogatyr as he claimed, but rather the Aurora.

Wow. I would have thought they would be the same. I am surprised, to say the least. Thank you.

I knew that it was the Aurora after comparing the ships and the pic, but the name got stuck in my head as that's what I originally thought it was.

But there's no way in hell I'd be able to ID ships just by a quick glance, like some of you guys can.

It is all about the guns.

Haha... I can't even remember the guns in the game, let alone reality.

Unfortunately I can not help with that one. 

I was born in USSR so I grew up with images of Aurora through my childhood and early teenage years.

I was born in Yugoslavia and never set foot in the US, so it doesn't help either.

I had another look and noticed that at 9:00 they go to shore and the life ring reads... "Detroit 2 M.L.", so it's gotta be that ship.

Now I just need to ID the Yugo ship shown briefly. That'll be impossible.
