Description

The Dvenadsat Apostolov (“Twelve Apostles") was a pre-dreadnought battleship built for the Imperial Russian Navy. She served in the Black Sea Fleet and was built by Nikolayev Admiralty Dockyard. Laid down in February 1888, launched in September 1890, she was commissioned in December 1892, and decommissioned and disarmed in 1911 before becoming a submarine depot ship in 1912. She was captured by the Germans in 1918 in Sevastopol and was handed over to the Allies in December 1918. She was captured by both sides in the Russian Civil War before falling into the hands of the Soviets when the White Russians evacuated the Crimea. She was used as a stand-in for the title ship during the film The Battleship Potemkin and was finally scrapped in 1931.
