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.

ww ii BB Marat 16-4164797-marat-22 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.

ww ii DD 01-3080305-kk2 Russian destroyers did sortie to escort the Murmansk convoys at the end of their trips.

ww ii DD 11-3118966-i-050 This is another example of a camouflaged destroyer

ww ii DD 29-3106196-922653457 This colorized picture is probably the one most familiar to English speaking audiences

ww ii DD razyarenni 02-3081256-esminets-proekta-7-razyarennyj- This destroyer is the RAZYARENNI. I don’t know the identity of the smaller patrol boat on the left.

wwii 22-3074104-soviet-destroyer This is my last example of Soviet destroyer camouflage
