Cool Big bad-ass Russian warships

Yes, the fictional Red October submarine was an 'Akula' (Shark) class, NATO code-name 'Typhoon'. Battlecruiser Pyotr Velikiy (Peter the Great) was named for the traditional founder of the Russian navy.

Are these vessels obsolete too, just like 'murcan aircraft carriers? I don't know, but they are still impressive.
