Izijaslav class destroyer

Izijaslav class destroyer

The "Izijaslav"-class were a group of destroyers built for the Baltic Fleet of the Imperial Russian Navy. They were modified versions of the "Orfey"-class destroyer built in Russia with the assistance of the French Company Augustin Normand. These ships fought in World War I, the Russian Civil War and the Second World War.


These ships were built by Bocker and Lange in Reval, Estonia. The ships were delayed due to ordering machinery from Switzerland which was embargoed on the outbreak of World War I. New machinery was ordered from Britain.
