History

Laid down 1 December, 1863, Ne Tron Menia was a Russian ironclad, commissioned 18 July, 1865. He was frequently modified over his service life, mainly alterations to the armament after he was assigned to training duties in the 1870s. He suffered two collisions in his career, neither serious, and was reclassified as a coast-defense ship in 1892. Hulked in 1895, Ne Tron was assigned to the mine school until 1905, when he was disarmed, and sold in 1908 for use as a barge. The Reds picked him up after the Civil War, and sold him to Leningrad Metal Works in 1925. He was sunk during World War II, and the wreck was raised and scrapped in 1950.
