In 1970, the Soviet Navy started Project 1165 Fugas to create a nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser. Also at this time, the Soviet Navy intended Project 1144 Orlan to be a nuclear-powered surface ship of some 9,000 tons displacement.

Information on Project 1165 is very scarce and there is much speculation concerning the design. Design concepts show Project 1165 armed with 32 or 40 P-700 Granit anti-shipping missiles, NATO reporting name SS-N-19 Shipwreck, and four or eight below deck launchers for the S-300F anti-aircraft missile, NATO reporting name SA-N-6 Grumble.

In August 1971, Project 1165 Fugas was combined with Project 1144 Orlan creating the Kirov-class nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser.

The 40 Granit design might have been developed into a very good alternative to the Slava class.
