Description

The Borodino (Russian: ????????) was the class leader of the Borodino-class battleship, and the second ship of her class to be completed. The ship was named after the 1812 Battle of Borodino. Borodino was lost at Tsushima with only one survivor out of a crew of 785 officers and men. Borodino sailed as part of the Russian Baltic Fleet in October 1904, for the Pacific. While under way, the fleet was redesignated the Second Pacific Squadron. She formed part of Admiral Zinovy Rozhestvensky's battle line at the Battle of Tsushima on 27 May 1905. Borodino was struck in one of her secondary batteries, a 152 mm turret by a 305 mm shell from the Fuji, resulting in a catastropic detonation in one of her magazines. Borodino exploded, rolled over, and sank quickly, leaving only one surviving crewman.
