 +With War looming over the horizon in the Pacific, the Russian Navy understood its need for a new protected cruiser that was capable of not only scouting operations, but to serve as supportive gunnery for squadrons and as a deterrent to enemy destroyers. The Naval Ministry determined the specifications for the new cruiser, placing an emphasis on speed, then held a contest to determine who would get the contract to build this ship; German shipbuilders Schichau won the contract.
 +Laid down in 1898 near Danzig, ''Novik'' was completed August 1900, and set to sea trials. It was immediately apparent that she lived up to her promise of being a fast ship: with an averaged clocked speed of 25 knots, making her the fastest cruiser in the world upon her completion. This came a cost; her endurance and fuel consumption above 15 knots was terrible. As well, she was envisioned as an enlarged destroyer, therefore her armour was light, with the exception of the armoured deck over her vital components, at a maximum thickness of 50mm.
 +Commissioned into the Baltic Fleet in 3 May 1901, ''Novik'' soon left for her service with the Pacific Fleet, joining it in Port Arthur by 1903, just before the eve of war.
 +The Russo-Japanese War commenced with the Naval Battle of Port Arthur. ''Novik'' was combat-capable and one of the few Russian ships that retaliated against the Japanese; suffering little damage.
 +Throughout the rest of the year, ''Novik'' was one of the more active ships that was stationed at Port Arthur; ''Novik'' took part of the rescue of two destroyers from a Japanese ambush and participated in the failed sorties from Port Arthur in April and June, until August when the fleet was successfully able to run the Japanese blockade during the Battle of the Yellow Sea.
 +While most of the fleet returned to port, ''Novik'' was part of the few that was able to escape, owing to her low silhouette, and fast speed. She decided to join the Russian cruiser squadron based in Vladivostok, going around the Japanese home islands, while being pursued by Japanese cruisers ''Tsushima'' and ''Chitose''. She was ambushed while coaling at Sakhalin, and forced into a duel off Korsakov. It was immediately apparent she was outgunned by the larger cruisers, and after sustaining three critical hits below the waterline; ''Novik'' was scuttled, ending her carrier in the Russian Navy on 20 August 1904.
 +After the War, the Japanese decided to salvage ''Novik'', and take her as a prize of war; she entered commission into the Imperial Japanese Navy on 20 August 1906 as ''Suzuya''. Although the Japanese wanted to use ''Suzuya'' as a scout cruiser, her original boilers were heavily damaged, replaced by only 8 boilers, as opposed to her original 12. Therefore she was no more able to attain the speeds she was famous for, and the Japanese quickly reclassified her to a 2nd class coastal defence vessel, a role she fulfilled until scrapped on 1 April 1913.

  • Decent speed
  • Long-range fast-firing guns
  • Good armor, on par with Dresden


  • Low HP pool
  • Slow shell speed
