The Oktyabr'skaya Revolyutsiya-class Aircraft Carriers are a series of capital ships built for the modern Soviet Navy [VMF], and represent the largest military surface vessels - in terms of internal volume and loaded displacement, although not length - in service in the world.
Basic Description & AttributesEdit
Each ship has a displacement nearing 300,000 Metric tonnes (~280-290,000) when fully-loaded and at sea. The hull length is just short of 640 meters, the beam 140 meters - giving them a longer, sleeker and more narrow profile than Western carrier designs of a similar layout (although modern NATO equivalents use an unconventional Trimaran hullform rather than the conventional layout preferred by the VMF).
