Ship Spotting

Now for something altogether more red.

What is it?

He's the Russian nuclear-powered icebreaker Arktika.

Or, he could be Arktika's brother-ship 50 Let Pobedy. Anyhow, he's a member of the Arktika class of nuclear-powered icebreakers.

Hello D.E.Reddick,

right second time.
This is the biggest of the class,50 years since Victory I think he is called in English.
There are some pictures of him with a rather impressive sharks mouth under him previous name.

It seems very odd calling a ship "him".

You got that so quickly something harder is called for and I have just the thing.
