The modernized ex-Gangut renamed Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya is my try.

Image is by Yakov Halip and it's dated 1936/37. Baltic Fleet only had 2 BBs around that time, the Marat and October Revolution so it's a pretty solid bet it's her.

A ship class with a very interesting history:
"They fought in four wars, took part in three revolutions and outlived all but one of their contemporaries while losing 50% of the class in the process"

That said, I think they looked ugly
