Gnevny ClassEdit

Like many of the warships produced by the Soviets in this period, the Gnevny class (also originally known as the Type 7, as the ship "Gnevny" was the first to be produced) bore an unmistakable Italian influence, which is unsurprising as they were designed and built with Italian assistance. As was characteristic of Italian designs, they were very fast, but had some issues with sea-worthiness. Their main armament of 4 (B-13 guns) 5.1” guns was about standard for destroyers of the era, and in spite of their sea-worthiness issues (which made them less than ideal for Baltic conditions), they were valuable additions to the Soviet Navy. 30 of them were completed, from which 20 survived World War 2, and an improved version, the Type 7U corrected some of these flaws and was also built in substantial numbers (18 in all.) They served in all three Soviet fleets (Baltic, Black Sea, and Pacific) and some from the latter fleet were even transferred to the Chinese, forming the nucleus of the post-war “People’s Liberation Army Navy.”

Stalin personally oversaw the construction of the ships of this type, so it was sometimes called "Stalin's series."

GnevnyEdit

On December 8, 1935 at Zhdanov Shipyard in Leningrad a new Navy destroyer was laid, the first built in the Soviet Union. Named "Gnevny", it became the head in a large series of ships of the type 7. July 13, 1936 "Angry" was launched, and December 23, 1938 entered the Baltic Fleet. It participated in the war with Finland (shelled enemy positions on the island Ute on December 14, 1940 ). By the beginning of World War II it was part of light forces of the Red Baltic Fleet and was based in Riga (Ust-Dvinsk). On the first day of the war commanders were ordered to provide cover mine supply at the mouth of Finland Gulf. At 3:45 June 23, 1941 "Gnevny" hit a mine 16 mile from the lighthouse Tahkuna.
