Operating on their own as commerce raiders they would be extremely vulnerable in good weather to USN aircraft carriers and the few remaining Baltimore, 8 inch gunned cruisers, but the RNs few remaining Colony and Tiger class gun cruisers probably lacked the range  and speed to provide any answer and the Daring and Forrest Sherman inchoate cruiser destroyer, didn't, if as planned the Sverdlovs had been used to intercept trade with major UK food basket in the Plate off Buenos Aires, the Battle of North Cape suggesting the Royal Navy trade route cruisers, lacked the rough water speed and armour to deal with, even solo heavy raiders, unless aided by communications intercept and heavy guns.
A. There are four different air search radars listed. Some information on why they were all there (or what they did) would be helpful.
B. There are three different gun fire control radars. Some information on why they were all there (or what they did) would be helpful.
C. The line '1x 'Knife Rest' air search radar*' end with an asterisk as if there is a note but I cannot see one.
- My impression is that the radar equipment differ between ships of this class. The most common air-search radar should be 'Top Trough' (Kaktus) or its successor 'Big Net' (MR-500 Kliver). The only ship I've seen the 'Knife Rest' (Dolphin) on is Admiral Ushakov. It is possible that it was a part of the upgrade with AK-230 AA-guns and the 'Drum Tilt' (MR-104 Rys) FC-radar. In that case should Oktyabrskaya Revolutsia and Mikhail Kutuzov also have it, but it is gone from Kutuzov today.
- There was one type of FC-radar for each type of gun. 'Top Bow' for the 152mm, 'Sun Visor' for the 100mm and 'Egg Cup' for the 37mm. 'Drum Tilt' (MR-104 Rys) was added to the ships that was upgraded with AK-230 30mm guns (Ushakov, Oktyabrskaya and Kutuzov).

The page on the Crabb affair says Sverdlov had superior manouverability due to being equipped with a bow thruster. Can anyone confirm this? There’s no mention of it in this article. Xyl 54 (talk) 12:41, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
Much of the article seems like it was translated from Russian by someone who is only marginally fluent in English, with the result that the translations may be a bit too literal or just plain bad. Some of the grammar may make perfect sense in Russian but it's borderline nonsensical in English. Run-on sentences, subject/verb agreement, and tense mismatches are all present in the text.
