I guess it's the Romanian monitor "Basarabia" (ex-"Marx", ex-"Ujvidek", ex-K.u.K. SMS "Inn"), launched in 1915, captured by SU forces in 1944, renamed "Kerch", returned to Romania in 1951 and stricken in 1960.

No sugar loaf mountain removed. The mystery ship was built in the country that used it, although it was somewhat based on the De Soto class LST.
