Many people know that the major naval powers camouflaged their warships in the Second World War. The Russian fleet, however, has received little attention. Possibly because of the nature of the then Communist regime. In any case, here are some examples of camouflage on Soviet ships of that era.
The Russian battleship MARAT spent most of her time as a floating anti-aircraft battery. She was painted to make her look like part of the city.
Russian destroyers did sortie to escort the Murmansk convoys at the end of their trips.
This is another example of a camouflaged destroyer
This colorized picture is probably the one most familiar to English speaking audiences
This destroyer is the RAZYARENNI. I don’t know the identity of the smaller patrol boat on the left.
This is my last example of Soviet destroyer camouflage
