The Kronshtadt-class battlecruisers are a class of battlecruisers developed in the 1930s by the Soviet Union for the Soviet Navy in the early 1930s. Much of the design work was accomplished by using naval engineers abducted from the British Empire, Japan and United States (and later UAPR).

Both ships, Kronshtadt and Sevastopol were commissioned in 1936.
