Any idea about the name of this unfortunate cruiser? I've tried to find her name. Some sources say she is the Murmansk - a Sverdlov-class. Some say she is a Chapayev-class. I'm not sure.

It is definitely a Sverdlov-class cruiser.

It shares the same design as Mikhail.

 

I've already read about the Sverdlov-class. But the Chapayev-class also share similar superstructure design and armament. That's why i'm pretty confused because many Chapayevs have their fates unknown.
