Cruiser type "Atlant" (pr.1164, NATO designation - "Slava") is the last representatives of the Soviet naval design, whose distinguishing features were massive pyramidal mast and inclined launchers for heavy supersonic missiles.
The cruiser has a very serious anti-aircraft and anti-ship missile weapons, as well as a very dense arrangement of weapons for its size.
Along with talent and good taste of Soviet engineers, this has led to a unique aggressive, but at the same time, the beautiful appearance of the ship.
Originally planned as version cruisers "Berkut-B" (NATO designation - "Kara") with reinforced attack weapons in case there are problems with the construction of nuclear "Kirov" class cruisers . But as the requirements of the ship and the creation of new models of weapons, mainly SAM "Fort" - navalized version of the famous S300 system, finally formed a new class of ship. In the photo - large ASW ship pr.1134B, intermediate project 1134BF with installed SAM "Fort",
missile cruiser pr.1164.
My model is built in the scale of 1: 350, for the construction took 1098 (844 - above waterline) bricks.
