Re: Augusta Victoria converted to Kuban
I HAVE LOOKED INTO THE Russia n volounteer fleet and i think they must be stealth ships ,there are so few good photos!the best i can figure is a gun on the stern and one each side in each of the well decks fore and aft. there may well be more , possibly 2 in each position but they appear to be unshielded so are hard to see, i would expect there to be lighter guns on the upper decks but can not see them , there may be something in a 1906 or earlier Janes, but my copy is in hiding at the moment!
In 1904, Germany sold the fast liner Augusta Victoria to Russia. She was renamed to Kuban and became an auxiliary cruiser.
My question: what guns were added to her? How many? And where?
