Stalingrand will be an upcoming Tier X Soviet Cruiser, this warship was first announced during Wargaming Fest 2017. It was a smaller and less-expensive counterpart to the Kronshtadt-class battlecruisers of 1939.
The original role was for a light, fast ship intended to break up attacks by British fast-cruiser forces that might attempt bombardment of Russia’s northern ports. The design would have been able to outgun any ship with similar speed, or outrun anything more heavily armed. Design work had just started when the German invasion of the Soviet Union opened and the design was put on hold.
