Yeah, I've been researching how they operated. I'm thinking a combination of this with the Krasin for my own might work. Also found the Tarmo which might make another starting point.

Interesting. Mind if I use it as a basis to create a larger icebreaker? (as in, using the basic look but not any actual parts)

Thank you.
Many forget that for every capital ship, cruiser and frigate you have, you'll have almost twice as many smaller auxiliary vessels essential to operations. That and little ships are so much easier to draw and can look quite nice.

Greetings all, I'm planning on drawing an icebreaker soon for my AU nations navy (the Sieranian Republic Navy thread in the AU forums) and I'm trying to find good references or plans for icebreakers of the 1900-WW2 period. So far I haven't really been able to find anything useful. Anybody know where...

Yeah, the Northern ports (including the major one at Pevek) are all ice-locked during the cooler months (which averages about 160 days of the year due to the location). The navy does have a substantial number of icebreakers of their own as well as the ability to requisition the few civilian ones whe...

Probably one of the few real-world vessels operated by the SRN, the SRN Admiral Ushakov is the ship of the same name of the former Imperial Russian Navy. Built by New Admiralty Shipyards, Saint Petersburg and launched on the 1st of November 1893, she was a member of a class of coastal defence ships....

The climate is the same as real world except the tundra starts a bit further North than in reality. The most inhabited areas are along the Southern borders. You are right, that's why the population remains relatively small. The biggest advantage the nation has is its resources which is probably the ...

Very nice looking design indeed, smart too.
I would personally have given the design a tripod foremast but that's just my own personal taste.
Oh, and I like the twin funnel design more, looks sleeker.

Well I've had a productive day and finished the R 00 Class destroyers as well. They are supposed to be the first ships designed and built for the Sieranian Republic Navy with the first Commissioning in 1908. They were based heavily upon the three destroyers which the Navy 'inherited' from the remnan...
