About the cruiser Varyag

Russian cruiser Varyag is the third ship of the Slava-class of guided missile cruisers built for the Soviet Navy now serving the Russian Navy. The vessel was launched on 28 August 1983 and commissioned on 16 October 1989.

The vessel has a standard displacement of 10,000 tonnes (10,000 long tons) and 12,700 t (12,500 long tons) at full load.[2] Varyag measures 186.4 metres (611 ft 7 in) long with a beam of 20.8 m (68 ft 3 in) and a draught of 8.4 m (27 ft 7 in).

The vessel is powered by a combined gas or gas (COGOG) system comprising four 23,300 kilowatts (31,250 shp) boost gas turbines and two 8,900 kW (12,000 shp) cruise gas turbines driving two shafts for a combined 93,000 kW (125,000 shp).
