So, “Moscow” did drown. The brainchild of the mayor of Moscow Luzhkov, with whom he rushed throughout the 90s, went to the bottom. Gone is the era (sarcasm).

The Russians turned out to be pretty stupid in terms of naming. They named their flagship as if no one could sink it. May be. They were so afraid of the Americans, but they got two “Neptunes” on board.

History of Deutschland

Germany, after the defeat in the First World War, could not build a fleet at its own discretion. Under the Treaty of Versailles, the number of the German fleet from among the former ships of the Kaiser fleet was limited. Gradually they grew old and it was allowed to build two more training ships.

Gradually, the Germans began to militarize again – and in 1928, with scandals, they decided to build a new heavy cruiser Deutschland, or “Germany” in German. In 1933 he joined the Navy. The tonnage is just like that of the Moskva.

Then several local conflicts followed, but in 1939 the Second World War began. Therefore, in November 1939, by order of Hitler, she was renamed Lützow, because otherwise the British would have hunted for this cruiser with a pretentious name, they would have sunk it and used it for PR purposes. Therefore, they made a tricky renaming.

The name Deutschland, they say, was left for some even larger ship. And Lützow sailed for herself until the end of the war, and on May 4, 1945 she was scuttled. After the war, they raised it again and flooded it again.

“Moskva” drowned

But no one drowned Deutschland. But our “Moscow” was sunk.

In the place of the Russians, I would change the names of most of their nominal ships to what something poetic.

They are so busy with their literature. Well, yes, they have Turgenev with the naval story “Muma”. Here they need to be called somehow easier – “Mumu-1”, “Mumu-2”, “Mumu-3” …

Interestingly, the name Lützow was taken from an already existing ship. In the same 39th year, the heavy cruiser Lützow was introduced into the German fleet, but subsequently it was sold to the USSR (ally). There he was called “Petropavlovsk” and under this name he subsequently fought against the Germans. After the war, he was still part of the Soviet fleet, until he was sawn into metal in the 60th.
