Kiev-class CVL

The Soviet aircraft carrier Baku at sea after her most recent overhaul.

The Kiev-class aircraft carriers (also known as Project 1143 or as the Krechyet-class) were the first class of fixed-wing aircraft carriers built in the Soviet Navy.
The Kiev-class in AAO started out in the configuration of the Vikramaditya rather than the original design. Being designed as a pure carrier also allowed for an increased number of aircraft to be carried.
