The destroyer leader “Tashkent”January 11, 1935Construction started in Italy,November 28, 1937into the water,October 22, 1939Accepted into service by the USSR. The design of the “Tashkent” was unusually avant-garde at the time. It was one of the few large ships with a speed of more than 40 knots during World War II. After the transformation in 1942, its firepower was even upgraded to the level of a light cruiser.
During World War II, her main mission was as a transport ship for personnel and supplies. Among the Soviet ships transporting supplies to Sevastopol, the “Tashkent” is quite legendary, and even the Germans know its name. There were more than 90 air strikes, and the German army dropped more than 400 bombs and fired 10 torpedoes on it.
After the “Tashkent” was withdrawn to the Novorossiysk naval base, it was completely blown up on the slipway in an air strike on July 2. It was salvaged in 1944 and was demolished in 1945 because it had no repair value.
