*edit - There are two 'black' ships in the opening sequence.  The first has deck guns and appears, as Boomer365 points out in the next post, to be Aurora (*edit - correction, it appears to be Diana).

Oleg has a cylindrical turret and doesn't fit either ship in the clip.

The second ship is Mikasa:

...and one of the clips of her in the opening sequence:

It is Mikasa I think- turret and gun layout is the same, plus it feature Aurora right after, one of the many Russian cruisers it fought during the Battle of Tsushima.

That particular fight was a royal mess on the Russian Part.

They traveled halfway around the world coaling as they went ,must have took months with the associated wear and tear on the engine. Reminds me of the USS Oregon who got war orders on the west coast, painted out her hull to slate grey and then spent weeks around Cape Horn to come up to Cuba in a situation which she could be in battle with the Spanish at any moment. 14000 miles later she showed up and I think did very well.

An old, official WoWS cinematic in YouTube.

You can see 2 black ships in this video:  0:23 thru 0.29, and another at 0.31 time.

 

The first one is Russian.

The eagle on the bow is a traditional emblem with Tsarist Russia.  That flag flying in the second picture is the ensign for the Imperial Russian Fleet.

 

It looks like a Pallada-class Cruiser.  Aurora is configured like that ship in the video, but we have no game camo like that for her, at least not with the Aurora I possess.

Aurora below.

I have Oleg who has that black and gold camo but she's not the same kind of ship.

The other dark ship in that early part of the video is this:

That's Mikasa.  She's also flying the "Z Flag" which for the Imperial Japanese Navy holds special meaning.  At Tsushima, Admiral Togo had that flown.  It's also in the game as the "Zulu" flag.  Here she is in WoWS:

Since we have a Pallada-class Cruiser and Mikasa in the same segment, battle of the video, it has to be the Battle of Tsushima.  The only Pallada-class Cruiser in that battle was Aurora who was able to escape from the disaster.

She's a museum ship in St Petersburg right now.

The Aurora was one of the few Russian ships to get away and I think that she went to St Petersburg on the Baltic where she would have gotten the grey paint that Baltic fleet units had.

The Russian cruiser doesn't appear to be Aurora, either.  At least, not as she is configured in game.  The video clip ship doesn't have turret shield protection on the side cannons, and in-game Aurora does.

It's either Aurora or Diana as they were configured in 1904. Diana is at tier 2 in her 1904 configuration, while Aurora is at tier 3 in her 1915 configuration.

After looking over Diana in game, that is the 2nd black ship in the opening video.

So, they are Mikasa and Diana.
