UPDATED DESCRIPTION: I had this idea in my head for some time, what about giving this old fanart some photoshop love? Also I turned this into a wallpaper and gave it some additional symbols, I think it's an improvement, just in case here is the old link so you can see the difference:

By the way, I have find an explanation of how such giant can fly through the sky, it uses a ramification of the antigravitational tecnology used by Yuri's flying disks, of course it's not as advanced as Yuri's tech, but it compensates in speed with heavy armour, also the MK2 is nuclear powered so in the unbelievable event of getting shot down it will create a massive explosion capable to damage even aircrafts in close proximity.

Old description:

More art from the days of Red Alert 2, now those are heavy weapons, not just bombs but also an AP gatling gun, AA cannons and extra armor.

The work was done with markers, but I also applied some photoshop, still experimental, but I was happy with the result at that time,hmmm, maybe I should buy markers, they are better than pencils anyway.

Well guys, I will always insist Red Alert should take the Warhammer 40,000 approach when doing highly impausible military scifi stuff :)

well, its kinda the MK3, because the first one(RA2) could only drop bombs.
the second (RA3) could repair itself, as well as doing the speed boost thing.
and then this i assume is the MK3, fuck know what kinda crazy shit this monster can do.

Actually, the RA2 version could repair itself as well, much like the Apocalypse Tank. I mean, how else are you gonna repair a Kirov? Certainly not by landing it. So, I think Westwood Studios decided to allow self-repairing to give the illusion of like an on-board mechanic or something. Oh, and it's speed increased slightly with each promotion. There isn't much difference between the one in RA2 and the one in RA3.

so then i guess its mk 4 or something? becuase mk2 could not speed boost itself, but the one i RA3 could, assuming its mk3, so this one must be MK4 then.

...

Something like that.

That actually makes sense. Considering how many phases of upgrades the Kirov has seen throughout the game, I'd consider it MK 4 or something of the like. This one has some propulsion systems, AA guns, AC130-like firepower, and extra armor.

You may be right on that one.

actualy no, this must be mk 3!!
if the kirov from RA 2 was the first one, and there was no kirov in RA 1, that must mean this
RA2: MK1
RA3: MK2
this: MK3

Oh. You're right. I just checked my RA1 instruction booklet, and no Kirov Airships were available during that time. Also, the intro movie for RA2 features Kirov Airships, which must signify the Soviet's new toy. Good conclusion! :)

This should be called Kirov Class Missile-cruiser
Dropping bombs over a target area it's just unrealistic, specially for this ship, too large and too slow, it should take advantage of Soviet ballistic capabilities (in the game) and make it an Airborne Missile Ship, I don't think there is enough Helium there to get the monster of the ground so I would suggest that the shape is a counter espionage solution (add to the shape some, documents to suggest that soviets are building cargo lifters and Allies spy satellites wouldn't care much about it), as for lift a Tesla Reactor would generate electricity for lifting and thrust fans.
