CS Kirov is a Coalition class 2 cruiser in Starlancer.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Tornado class of cruiser has been serving the Coalition for more then 50 years. Initially groundbreaking in its design, it is now considered slightly antiquated but is still a potent offensive weapon that can cause havoc if encountered by supply convoys.

Encounters[edit | edit source]

  • The Kirov is encountered at the end of Mission 2, with its fighter complement engaged in heavy fighting with the Pumas. Once you wipe out its fighter contingent, it's reinforced by the CS Zakov. After dispatching the Zakov's fighter contingent, the Yamato makes a dramatic entrance and wipes out both capital ships with torpedo salvos.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Like many other ships of the Coalition, the Kirov shares its name with a prominent Soviet leader, Sergey Kirov.
