Russian destroyer


#1

My son is gesturing towards a Soviet destroyer with USS Massachusetts in the background. What is the calibre of the Russian front gun turret?

Russian ships carried guns ranging from 25mm and up. That particular mount looks like its around 57 to 76 mm or so??? Just a guess. If you knew the name of the ship or it’s class I could make a better guess.

Should be the 76mm AK176.
The Russian Navy also has 100 and 130mm guns.

The ship should be the #4 from the top on the right side:
