Russian battleship Slava

Russian battleship Slava

The "Slava" ("Слава", Russian: "Glory") was a pre-dreadnought battleship of the Imperial Russian Navy, the last of the five sclass|Borodino|battleships. Commissioned too late to participate in the key naval Battle of Tsushima of the Russo-Japanese War, she survived while three of her sister ships were sunk during the battle and one was surrendered to the Imperial Japanese Navy.

"Slava" served in the Baltic during World War I and was engaged during the attack of the German High Seas Fleet against a squadron of the Russian Baltic Fleet in the Battle of the Gulf of Riga in August 1915. The "Slava", sustaining heavy damage from the German dreadnought SMS|König during the Battle of Moon Sound, began taking water which lowered her waterline. The channel being relatively shallow it made it impossible to escape, and she was eventually scuttled in the Moon Sound straight between the isle of Muhu (Moon) and the mainland.
