Based on this specific group of these ship types, one naval expert concluded that this was most likely a photo of the Black Sea Fleet.
*Ships are all Black Sea Fleet
,* A. D. Baker III, a retired Office of Naval Intelligence analyst, told Navy Times after looking at the image. *These four ships, at the time the photo was taken, constituted the entire major surface combatant component of the Black Sea Fleet,* Baker said, noting the photo was likely to be six years old or older. (The Kerch is now on the list to be scrapped, Baker said.)
