Borodino Class Battleships (1904-05). The Russian flagship Kniaz Suvorov heading into battle at Tsushima, where three-quarters of her class met annihilation. The battleship was built at the Baltic Works in Riga, Latvia for the Imperial Russian Navy as part of a spendthrift buildup of the Russian fleet for the expected conflict with Japan. The Borodino class were badly jobbed Russian copies of the battleship Tsesarevich built for Russia at Brest, 1899-1903.
