The Wreck and Salvage of the Soviet Battle Cruiser Murmansk

The Soviet Battle Cruiser Murmansk was built in 1955. In 1994, the ship was being towed to India for scrapping when the towline broke loose and it ran aground on the coast of Finnmark in northern Norway. In 2009, the Norwegian government decided to remove the wreck. As it was in too bad of shape to be re-floated, it was broken up in place.
