The cruiser Bayan was the class leader of the Bayan-class armoured cruisers build for the Imperial Russian Navy, to be used as scouts.  It was 449 feet overall, with a battery of guns and armored plating.  The ship was built in France, at La Seyne-Sur-Mer, and completed in February, 1903. 

Dispatched to Port Arthur, the ship was involved in several of the naval engagements of the Russo-Japanese War.  Trapped in Port Arthur, the Bayan was sunk at her mooring by Japanese bombing on December 9, 1904.  After the war, she was refloated by the Japanese and used as a training ship.
