IRTYSH (ex. KRASNAYA GAZETA, ex. KAZAN) built 1932 by Baltiyskiy Zavod Shipyard, Leningrad (6140ts full load) . She was in service as an submarine depotship during WW II in the Baltic Sea until 1945.
1. Was she re-delivered to Soviet Merchant Navy after 1945 or still in service for the Soviet Navy as submarine depotship ?
2. Does anyone know her fate, i.e. the year she was broken up ?
Many thanks in advance.
