Condition of ship at start of August 9th[edit]

In the section "Wartime service", it says that the Sevastopol "was not fully repaired, having one inoperable 12 inch gun turret in her aft."

I think this needs re-wording. But, does it mean that one of the two guns in the aft turret was inoperable, or that the entire turret was inoperable? --Demiurge1000 (talk) 21:36, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Also, in the same section, it says that the admiral "ordered six separate waves of destroyers to sink the battleship, some of which were launched from the Fuji and Mikasa". This makes it sound as if the destroyers were launched by the Fuji and the Mikasa? Does it in fact mean that the Fuji and Mikasa also launched some torpedoes, as well as the destroyers launching torpedoes? --Demiurge1000 (talk) 21:57, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

I've fixed both problems. Buggie111 (talk) 23:51, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Two things[edit]

Bum sentence: "Immediately after the surrender of Port Arthur, Sevastopol was scuttled to prevent her capture by the Imperial Japanese Navy and never raised." Can it be fixed, please? Also, I footnoted the Cyrillic equivalent of the ship's name, since it seems hardly necesary on en.WP to clutter the opening with the phonetically same rendering in a script English-speakers don't know. But the number is kind of big, so please revert if you don't like it. Tony (talk) 11:15, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

I've fixed and reverted. Buggie111 (talk) 14:32, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
