She was "WIP class" cruiser. :cap_horn:

I also had a serious doubt on your statement "of this beauty" and concern coming from a perspective of a player who long dislike "USSR ships", "paper ship".

Russian WoWS wiki says they're called Project MLK: https://wiki.wargaming.net/ru/Navy:Легкие_крейсера_проекта_МЛК

Smolensk in particular is pr. MLK 16х130

"Sovietsky OP" class last time I checked.

LOL.

I believe OP stands for "Oversky Powerezhnyet."

The Russians generally called their ships (and tanks) "Русскыжнскж Бжазетчсны" (Russkyinski Biazethsny). So, in this case, the name would be;

Russkyinski Biazethsny Oversky Powerezhnyet.

Russians love their long, ostentatious names.

I reject your accusations of my views on Russian ships I have many VMF ships, the fact that  you have one of the best destroyers in game and refuse to play it due your own bias towards that nation is a damning indictment on you SIR.

Its been long established you are in fact anti USN as you refuse to play your Smith in game :Smile_veryhappy:

Reminds me of reading Crime in Punishment in high school.

I hated that book.

The ship's class is whatever the Russian phrase is for "We pulled this out of our butts".

 

Edit:It's also the first cruiser to have the same designation as it's nation's battleships :Smile_hiding:

A big thanks  to @vak_ for wiki page other than that there is a article from the daily bounce about the ship with a link to some obscure page link to another article about this ship with some diagrams, but a search for the ship class under project MLK with a standard google search gets this:

 https://www.writerstheatre.org/the-mlk-project-tour which is in fact about  Martin Luther King but i digress getting off subject some what.

It seems Lesta has better connections to the Kremlin than the KGB when it comes to getting blueprints of secret developments.

For the ship itsself looking at these obscure designs and realising that real ships could have been made I have trouble keeping a straight face on the matter of this tier 10 Cruiser cant wait till she is released:Smile_ohmy::Smile_sceptic:

I can't blame him for that; while Smith isn't the worst DD in the game it's hardly a stand out.

Project MLK

They want ships to be judged on the content of their magazines, not the color of their camo.
