Episode 43 of Know Your Ship! In this educational video I cover the Sverdlov class light cruisers of the Soviet Navy. These cruisers were the last gun armed cruisers in the Soviet Navy. These ships served for many years and were the experimental platforms for many advances in technology and strategy. Anyways Captain’s sit back, relax and enjoy the story of the Sverdlov class crusiers.
