  1. Looks comfy inside and a pretty good ship itself. Hope they build more battleships to defend their waters. I believe that Russia is the only truly free country in the world, free from western banking scams at least, hope it stays like that in the future.

  2. Its junk ,30 years old ,it needs to be out of service.Please turn this this vessel into a muesum.Russia is a second rate power ,stop wasting your taxes on this sort of carp and invest on things to the country back on its feet.Ayaa do you like seaman ?

    • So the ship is 30 years old, so what? Even the mighty US Navy’s ships weren’t built last year. Most of its ships also date back to the 1980’s.

      When a country has the ability to launch a nuclear attack on any part of the world, it’s a power to be reckoned with.

      Our tax rates are just 13% for individuals, so its hardly a concern. And tell me, just what area does Russia have to “invest on things to the country back on its feet”.

      Oh, and I have great respect for Russian sailors, not so much for other navies.

      • The US fleet does have older vessels. However, it has also had an aggressive moderization scheme. Just like the B-52, adding new technology to an old chasis keeps it current for a lower cost. The tech in this ship looks original.

    • Actually, the P-1000 is pretty new system. Moskva was carrying P-500 Basalt when she was built.
      Anyway, please come back when USA develop their supersonic anti-ship missile.

  3. Say what you like about this ship and its crew. But the fact remains that the greatest conflict Russia has ever fought (the greatest conflict the world has ever seen) started out when the the entire Soviet Navy’s surface ships all dated back to WWI. And the Navy was never defeated.

    Just so it’s clear, the Russian Navy’s surface fleet is meant just for defense, not attack. That’s what the submarines are for.

    • I meant the Second World War, no some battle that happened over a hundred years ago.

      The Soviet Navy was there just fine. It was the dominant (and also only) sizable Allied force in the Baltic and Black Sea.

  4. I had no idea the main gun mount had an operators position… I thought it was remote controlled. Must be horrible being inside of it while shooting. I’ve read it fires 100 rounds a minute!
