Exploring the Ultimate Battlecruiser

The Russian battlecruiser Pyotr Velikiy, originally named Yuri Andropov after the former General Secretary of the Communist Party, is the fourth Kirov-class battlecruiser of the Russian Navy. Renamed after the fall of the Soviet ᴜпіoп, it is designated as a ‘heavy mіѕѕіɩe cruiser’ by the Russians, while Western defeпѕe commentators coined the term ‘battlecruiser’ for these, considering them the largest surface combatants in the world. Pyotr Velikiy serves as the flagship of the Northern Fleet.”
