Item DescriptionPyotr Velikiy is the fourth Kirov-class battlecruiser of the Russian Navy. She was originally named Yuri Andropov. The Russian designation for the type is "heavy missile cruiser", but Western defense commentators re-invented the term "battlecruiser" to describe these; the largest surface combatant warships in the world. Pyotr Velikiy is the flagship of the Northern Fleet.
Because of economic problems both before and after the fall of the Soviet Union, work on the ship was severely postponed. It was not commissioned until 1996, ten years after the construction started. It had by then been renamed Pyotr Velikiy, Russian for Peter the Great.
