Description: The Project 1143, also known as Kiev class, aircraft carrier was designed to provide support for Soviet ballistic submarines, surface ships and aircraft of the Soviet navy. They feature anti-air, anti-surface and anti-submarine weapon systems as well as a large flight deck for helicopters and V/STOL aircraft such as Yak-38.

The Soviet Navy commissioned up to four ships of the Project 1143 but due to the Soviet Union's collapse these ships were inoperable by mid 1990s.
