'Pyotr Velikiy' (Peter the Great) is a heavy nuclear-powered cruiser (TAKR), the 4th Kirov class battlecruiser of the Russian Navy, originally named 'Yuriy Andropov' . Although the ship is not a battlecruiser in the traditional definition of the type, but a missile cruiser (official: 'Heavy Rocket Cruiser'), its size has given it the unofficial designation of 'battlecruiser' in the mass media of many countries. Pytor Velikiy is the flagship of the Northern Fleet.
The Kirov class battlecruisers are a class of military ships of the Russian Navy, the largest and heaviest surface combatant warships (i.e. not an aircraft carrier, assault ship, or submarine) currently in active operation in the world. Originally built for the Soviet Navy, in Russia they are usually known by the designation Project 1144 Orlan (sea eagle).
They are second in size only to aircraft carriers, and are similar in size to a World War II battleship. Because of this, the ships are sometimes known as battlecruisers in the West. It is more appropriate to consider Kirov an oversized guided missile cruiser.
The Kirov hull design also was used for the nuclear-powered SSV-33 command ship.
