Did you enjoy watching the episodes about detective Kléberot and shinobi Hayate? Then make sure to watch our next episode of Warships Stories!

I feel so incredibly confused. Am I on drugs?

If you don't know, the answer is probably yes.

Nuts, and here I thought protected cruisers were going to get some love...

May I ask why, given the title, Bogatyr (and other protected cruisers) didn't appear at all?

I kept my eyes peeled, ready for some low-tier ships instead of the Minotaurs. Des Moines, Kagero, ... (Also, since Kagero/Urashima lacks radar, it would've made more sense for Smalland/Black to meet Nevsky. Something else puzzling me is Nevsky never uses his torpedoes, even in such dire times. Why?)

Thanks!

Because that was what they wanted to do for those videos?

Because of what a "bogatyr" is. It sounds like the boogeyman, but it isn't.

A good Western analogy is the 'knight errant', made famous in stories like Le Morte d'Arthur and the search for the Holy Grail.

Same.

Bogatyr is a term applied to warriors in Ancient Rus. Bogatyri are the main characters of ancient epic folk stories

Fine and dandy, but still a slight bummer. (Bogatyr is one of the few RU cruisers I actually like. Actually had my first 300 hit game using it.)

Kudos for Dvorjak's New World, a fave musical piece.
