In the mid-1930s, Italian company Ansaldo worked on a project for a heavy cruiser that was intended for the U.S.S.R. In the first half of the 20th century, it was common practice for Italian shipbuilding companies to offer their projects to interested countries, and right before World War II, the U.S.S.R. started building their Great Fleet.
The Italian shipbuilders offered a project for a battlecruiser with a standard displacement of 22,000 tons. However, it would never actually be constructed. Nevertheless, the blueprints that were brought from Italy to the U.S.S.R. turned out to be influential—the battleships of Project 23, as well as one of the initial drafts that preceded the creation of the Project 69 cruisers, drew plenty of inspiration from the Italian design.
