I'm relatively new to the period and am looking to recreate the Battle of Port Arthur, can anyone recommend where I might find reasonably comprehensive OOBs for both fleets?

Many thanks

What I'm most keen to find out is the numbers and if possible classes of the escorts/non-Capital ships so I can represent them as accurately as possible

This is from the old GDW game on the Russo Japanese War. I will try to get you the lighter ships as well. It may just be the numbers of destroyers and torpedo boats however.

Russian Destroyers from the Russo-Japanese War Society site

Rastoropini a Pulki class
Beztrashni namesake of its class

Japanese destroyers
1st Destroyer flotilla
Shirakumo and Asashino both Shirakumo class
Kasumi and Akatsuki bot Akasuki class

2nd Destroyer flotilla
Ikazuchi and Inadzuma both Inadzuma class

3d Destroyer flotilla
Usuguma, Shinonome, and Suzanami

hope this helps
